The Colors of Lewis Hill Preserve

There’s a painting in California’s Central Valley. It’s a grassy-hilled canvas just north of Porterville that stretches 110 acres.  Pointillism at its finest is an understatement as the rocky outcroppings rival any work of Seurat. And then there’s the wildflowers, placed ever so erratically along the foothill just as nature’s brush intended. Lewis Hill Preserve is a place where rare and beautiful works of art like the striped adobe lily bask in sharp contrast to the modernistic approach of development. A Sunday afternoon and a cool breeze, it was the perfect day for an art show…enjoy!
