Artist's Description

Oil on Canvas. Detail, work in progress. Available in prints, cards, & t shirts (click on “clothing”).
Cachagua is inland from the Pacific, Central Coast California. (That’s a hundred miles south of San Francisco, north of LA about 350 miles). A place of empty wilderness except for a handful of hearty families, horse and cattle ranches, vineyards. Mysticism and spirits, a hot spring Buddhist retreat, canyons and the gentle sand suede Santa Lucia Mountains that stretch to the coast.. Steep & narrow dirt roads. There are mists at dawn and sunset, burned off midday by intense sun. Mountain lions, rattle snakes, deer, bobcat, coyotes, incredible birds like the 12 foot wingspanned Condor, the Golden Eagle, owls, and Cooper’s hawks populate the skies. At night, stars horizon to horizon and the full of the Milky Way overhead.
A moonrise lights the valleys. You can hear your own heart beating.
LIved there a year, just starting to paint it.
The name’s pronounced kaSHAHwa. I don’t know if it’s Spanish or American Indian or both.
