White Oleander Trail

June 26th, 2007

“White Oleander Trail” – 8 x 10 oil on canvasboard

This is the second in my ongoing series of “Trails of La Canada-Flintridge.” Eventually I’d like to paint all of the interesting byways that criss-cross our little town, winding along back yards and horse corrals in this distinctly suburban-semi-rural area. This part of the trail, in Flint Canyon, passes by fences that are crowned with huge oleander plants – in rose and white. I suppose one of these days I’ll include a hiker, biker or horseback rider on the trail, as they are used by all three. But for now I’ll leave it open and you can use your imagination to suggest who’ll be coming round the bend.

  1. Karen, this is just beautiful. So serene and peaceful. I could just walk into the picture and mosey down the trail. Can’t wait to see more of the series.

  2. You’ve done a wonderful job of capturing the play of sunlight and shadow in this lovely painting!

  4. Karen – This painting is just superb! You are really hitting your stride – and not just in watercolors. I really like the idea of painting all the trails – when you are finished you have enough for an exhibit!

  5. You are developing several themes so it’s time to think about an exhibition of the byways and roads leading out from your area. You ae so focussed (I don’t mean the pictures which thankfully are not finicky) that you make us lazybones feel inadequate!

  6. This is beautiful! I just want to be there. The light and shade and composition are perfect. It’s a really pleasing painting.
