What a beautiful Saturday we had for a paint-out at the Heritage Square Museum. It's an architectural museum showcasing eight historically significant Victorian-era buildings. They were moved to Heritage Square between 1969 and 2005, saved from being demolished at their original locations. The open-air museum is lovely to visit and tours are available. As I painted, the bits I heard of passing tours were fascinating, telling the development of Los Angeles. I chose a shady spot to paint a view of the Palms Depot, built in 1875, and the railroad car. We also saw a resident cat, chickens, and a rooster. I'm looking forward to a another visit, and maybe another paint-out, around the holidays when the buildings are decorated.
