California Ranch Land One, abstract landscape by Carol Engles

8 x 10 watercolor, pastel and charcoal on paper. Yes! There still is ranch land in Southern California. The Temecula Valley has rolling hills with vineyards and ranch land, some with old barbed wire fencing from the past. In fact, Vail Ranch in the southern Temecula Valley was a final destination for cattle drives from Arizona.
