Huerta Pioneros Barn, Colonia Pacheco, Mexico 6-23-07

This water color was done in about 1.5 hours on 12x16 cold pressed 140 lb. Arches block. The clouds were building and we eventually had thunder and lightening and a few showers. A wonderful Saturday afternoon. The barn is an old log structure that was reconditioned recently to hold bags of fertilizer and orchard irrigation tubing. We slept for two nights in an old ranch house about 200 yards to the right of this scene. No electricity, only a solar panel with batteries. Water from a spring, hot showers by propane water heater. Not extreme roughing it, but pretty remote. 1.5 hours from the nearest small town (Colonia Juarez, Chihuahua) up a dirt road into the mountains.
