If your shed gets old and worn out, eventually it will need replacing. This photograph was taken by my good friend and former photography teacher Ruben Araiza – sometime back in the 70s or 80s, of a shed on a hill somewhere near Irvine. The place no longer exists and the field, trees and shed have been replaced by a neighborhood or offices or something. I always liked the photo and we traded photo for painting many years back. Over the intervening decade, the photo has faded badly. So, I decided to paint it in order to replace the image. Here are the two.
