Castle Green Balcony – Pasadena – by Karen Winters

August 21st, 2007

“Castle Green Balcony” – 9 x 12 oil on board
SOLD

One of Pasadena’s most venerable landmarks is the Castle Green, which was built before the turn of the 20th century as an annex to the Hotel Green by Col George Green, who made his fortune in the patent medicine business. It has been home to the Tournament of Roses, and at its time was the center of fashionable society in Pasadena.

Although there are more imposing and “postcard” views of this building, my eye was caught by a simple balcony adorned with geraniums, and accented by a very old palm tree. The late afternoon light made the scene positively glow.

Now, back to the easel …

  1. Another show stopper! I like the angle that you chose, with the flower packed balcony. The light is beautiful with the color of the building…

  2. This painting glows with warmth and the joy of life. Lovely. Bad luck about not selling paintings at the show, but that happens at book events – instead of buyers/readers attending, it’s mainly writers who don’t buy so readily. Anyway, keep on keeping on.
