Pasadena City Hall

July 24th, 2007

“A Bright New Day” – (Pasadena City Hall) 9 x 12 oil – SOLD

More Pasadena Paintings here

A week ago Sunday the members of the California Art Club assembled at Pasadena’s City Hall for a plein air paint out to celebrate the rejuvenation and retrofitting of this revered local landmark. I don’t usually paint architectural subjects, but I enjoy challenges and this one was a good one. Compounding the challenge was the changing light, which is always a factor in plein air work. During the hours that I worked on this – from 1 -5 pm or so, the facade became more radiant and glowing, which prompted opportunities to add impressionistic color.

A week later, after the painting was dry, we returned to the same venue for a show and sale. The City Hall painting went home with a collector, as did this painting of Eaton Canyon, completed on a paintout earlier the same week.

SOLD

To see more Pasadena paintings that are still for sale, go to My Gallery Site.

  4. Beautiful! Stunning light, Karen;. I’m not surprised it sold so quickly, you really should do more architectural paintings.

  6. These are so much nicer than most of the plein air paintings I’ve seen. The city hall painting is really amazing. I really admire your style and technique. It’s so exciting to see your work and I’m glad that it’s being appreciated by collectors more and more too.

  7. Congratulations on your good fortune of selling these two paintings. Both of them, beautiful! The one of the city hall must have been very complex and detailed but you pulled it off beautifully! Great job!

  8. Congratulations on the sale of your painting Karen! It’s a beautiful piece of work!

    I’m on Union & Marengo and I have to say that I’m very pleased to see City Hall restored & ahead of schedule too! I drive by it every morning on my way to work and it’s just a beautiful landmark building for all of Pasadena.
