Sunny Acres and Dan's Crane SLO
Sunny Acres 12x16
Another view of Dan's place. I plan to finish this one
out a bit more, but decided to put it up anyway.
Note: My on e man show at Segil has been extended for a week, if you thought you missed it you still have until Oct 27th.
Dan De Vaul runs Sunny Acres on his ranch on Los Osos Valley Road a the clean and sober facility in San Luis Obispo County. He’s given a hard time by the locals, as they don’t care for old rusty cars, and neat piles of firewood. He’s up against the local money of the once small town that is now becoming a haven for corporations and chain retail who want him out due to the run down nature of his place.
Of course I found the place rustic and beautiful. The residents I talked to were sober and trying to turn their lives around. He was kind enough to let me have free run of the place and I did two different paintings on two different mornings. If anyone knows someone who works in welding metal that has an artistic bent and needs a place to live with a full metal and wood shop with free assistants, Dan is looking for someone to help find a way to use old wood and metal to make some kind of sellable art objects or gifts for tourists.
If I were young and freewheeling or need a little help with sobering up I’d go for it. San Louis Obispo is a lovely area, clean air mountains and a beach nearby. Contact me if you think you know of someone who would fit the bill.
