This is a painting of one of the guest cottages at the Hearst Castle in California. I went 2
years ago and I loved the Spanish look that the cottages had where famous movie stars
would stay during the 30's and 40's. The gardens outside the cottage have wonderful rose bushes,tall trees and palm trees . The guest cottage has a fantastic view of the typical
rolling hills of California and the Ocean.

If you have never been at the Hearts Castle this castle is on top of the mountain by the sea.
If you stand by the ocean and look up this castle looks tiny and you can almost miss it.
But this is a huge castle. It takes 30 minutes to get from the bottom of the mountain to
the top.

I painted it with a whimsical brush stroke because this castle is almost like a fairy tale
location.Hearst was the baron of the newspaper empire at the time and brought true
antiques to adorn the place.The cottage almost looks like it should go on top of a wedding
cake it is that cute.

This is a fun and whimsical painting I hope you have enjoyed viewing and hopefully
add to your art collection.

SIZE: 24" X 24"

MORE ABOUT ME:

I Have been painting for 34 years and since 2008 I have been in the GROVEHOUSE
ARTIST GALLERY showing my work. From 1992 to 2002 I had a business CLAYWOOD
CREATIONS INC. making custom furniture and one of a kind crafts. In 1996 I started
selling my “Life Like Doggie Doorstops” to 400 pet boutiques nationwide, and was in
several national catalogs like “CASUAL LIVING', “WINTHERTHUR”, “PEDIGREES” and
selling in Japan thru a distributor. In 2001 due to 9/11 I closed the business and in 2003
had a bad car accident. It has taken me this long to get back to normal but the paintings
you are seeing in ETSY are the product of my coming back to be an artist once again.

I want your experience to be 100% positive. You can check my reputation on EBAY
CLAYWOODSTORE. I don't sell there anymore because I am looking to give the artsy
experience of dealing with the artist .Since I am new to ETSY I just wanted to
let you know I have been online for many years and have done business for over 12 years.

I am trying to move to California by next year so I have put on ETSY items that I have
made and treasured for sometime but I need to trim my collection. If you have any questions
just email me. I currently work with the federal government and my hours are 3:30 pm to midnight
but If you email me I will be able to answer the next day. Hope to hear from you.,
