"The Brickyard" ©

I had to set the timer today and race to "move" paint on the canvas. This scene is the area on the Amador Foothill Railroad called the "brickyard". I was curious, did this peach colored earth give birth to bricks, or was this the local of a brickyard for the town of Ione many decades long past? A note on the painting: I will add more branch work and develop the cliff more in the morning, at the very least. As usual I suspect in the morning with new eyes I will see a painting with serious flaws. Meanwhile I am off to paint with friends this evening. Yipee!
