Temecula Valley Foothills One

8x10 watercolor with pastel on paper. This is what I see everyday in the Temecula Valley. It is a lovely part of Southern California. Vineyards, horse ranches and rolling hills. The Temecula Valley had one of the last cattle drives that came into Southern California at the Vail Ranch. There is also a history of sheep ranching here as well. We are so fortunate that many of the Temecula wineries have put up hitching posts, water troughs and parking areas so we can ride our horses around the vineyards. And then enjoy a glass of wine afterwards!
