It was a frosty start yesterday in Arbuckle, CA. The sun eventually warmed the place. I chose to paint the old railroad station and stay in the sun. The station is actually fenced in with a large sign on it requesting donations for restoration. I remember seeing this beauty several years ago with all sorts of things growing up through the platform and building. These have all been removed and it just sits there naked. I removed the fences but I painted a rickety structure that has plenty of work needed. The sun created some nice shadows from the exposed beams.
There was not a lot of activity in Arbuckle but a few cars stopped to pick something up on Main St. A long train rolled by. The large parking lot remained empty except for a few painters. It was great to be outside.
