From the Safan Ranch in the Sacramento, CA Foothills…
Leon Rainbow ( www.leonrainbow.com ) came out from Trenton, New Jersey and created “War Machine” on about half of the long wall of the red barn. A real burner, it is 30+ ‘ long and represents our first of many (I hope) politically themed pieces up here. Leon then went on and painted another piece on the granary.
