Heller illustrates a Chatsworth landmark, Stoney Point, while celebrating the classic car and equestrian cultures indicative of this unique part of Los Angeles County.
“I really want to give a sense of the still very open landscape of this part of the valley. The classic car culture out here is pretty big and it helps to show the main thoroughfare through town: Topanga Canyon Blvd. Stoney Point/Rocky Peak is also an iconic feature of the landscape.”
