The inspiration for this little painting is an adobe mission in San Miguel, California. The original structure was built in the late 1700's, but was later rebuilt and completed in 1821 after a fire destroyed the earlier church. In 2003 an earthquake hit the area and severely damaged the buildings and closed the mission. The parish is once again operating and thriving following restoration.
