Mission San Luis Rey de Francia by 

The Logia at Mission San Luis Rey, Known as King of the Missions, Mission San Luis Rey de Francia was Founded in 1798 by Padre Fermin Francisco de Lasuen, successor to Padre Junipero Serra, the Mission was named after St. Louis IX, King of France, who lived during the 13th century. Located in Oceanside California it’s history of the San Luis Rey area in San Diego County reflects five periods of occupation: Luiseno Indian, Spanish Mission, Mexican Secularization, American Military, and Twentieth Century Restoration. In 1830, the mission was the largest building in California.

This painting by RD Riccoboni is inspired by the work of my friend photographer Joe Wolf.

RD Quote: The artist must show us something that we always see but only they can convey to us through the inner truth they have experienced. The artist experiences it first then takes us there showing us what magic belongs to them and then gives it away so we can experience the excitement too. That is the magic and value of art and artist. – RD Riccoboni
