McKittrick36 x 36 Oil on canvas
About an hour north of Oji on route 33 the road descends upon the far southwest corner of the San Joaquin Valley. Here, nestled up against the Carrizo Plain and the coastal mountain range is one of the most intense oil-producing regions in California. As far as the eye can see, endless oil pumps move rhythmically in the late afternoon haze.
McKittrick was selected by the California Art Club to be in their 107th Gold Medal Exhibition to be held in the Main Gallery of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles
The title of this painting, McKittrick, is a small frontier oasis for the oil workers.
