Hornitos Brick_N5Q4132.tif
A fine art western abstract of a brick building in the California village of Hornitos.  The name means "little ovens" in Spanish.  The town predates the California gold rush era.  The village gained notoriety during the gold rush era as a hideout for Joaquin Murrietta, active as a bandit in the 1850's.  The name was derived from the community's old Mexican tombstones that were built in the shape of little square bake ovens.  Hornitos is registered as California Historical Landmark #333.
