This painting is inspired by the title of an American fiddle tune, Off to California.This hornpipe in the key of G shows how fiddle tunes migrated across oceans and land from Ireland to California during the 19th century. In 1848 the territory of California lured only 400 settlers to make the long arduous journey there. But then James Marshall discovered gold at Sutter�s Mill and by the next year 90,000 fortune seekers made the journey either by steamships around the horn of South American or overland in covered wagons. The California Gold Rush was on!
