Plein Air Painting on an Old Western Movie Ranch

"Corriganville Rocks"
Oil on canvasboard, 9" X 12"

Corriganville Movie Ranch is located in Simi Valley, California. It's a park now and a great place to go hiking and painting, but Corriganville is full of history, too. For years it was a working movie ranch for Western movies and TV shows such as The Lone Ranger, The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, Fort Apache, Star Trek, and even The Creature From the Black Lagoon! Placards, placed all over the park, show what buildings used to be there and what films they were used in. There are incredible rock formations and beautiful oak trees, too.
