      it looks to me like the eastern side of the Southern Coastal Range - around Paso Robles in San Luis Obispo Cty - somewhere in there.

      From Askart
      Paul Lauritz
      Painter. Born in a small art colony of
      Larvik, Norway on April 18, 1889. Lauritz was exposed to art at an early
      age, studying with local and foreign artists in Larvik. At age 16 he
      moved to eastern Canada to live with his sister and found work as a
      hardrock driller in a mine. Working his way west, he worked as a commercial
      artist in Vancouver and Portland, OR where he began painting landscapes
      and portraits. The meager existence in artwork led him to Alaska with
      the Gold Rush. Unsuccessful as a miner, he again turned to painting
      and became a close friend of artist Sydney Laurence. The two artists
      held a joint exhibition before Lauritz left Alaska. In 1919 he settled
      in Los Angeles and established a studio-home in the Lyceum Theatre on
      Spring Street. When not teaching at the Chouinard and Otis Art Institutes
      or in his studio, he made painting excursions to the Sierra, up the
      California coast as far north as Carmel, to Mexico (1921), the Columbia
      River (1924), and Norway (1925). While in his native land, he was commissioned
      by the King of Norway to do a painting for the royal palace. Lauritz
      was an involved member of the Los Angeles art community and served for
      six years on the Los Angeles Municipal Art Commission. A versatile painter,
      his diverse subjects include desert scenes, portraits, snow scenes,
      marines and landscapes. He continued painting until his demise at his
      home in Glendale, CA on October 31, 1975.
