Under Autumn Skies – Arroyo Seco – Pasadena

September 27th, 2007

“Under Autumn Skies” – 11 x 14 oil on canvas
SOLD

This was the painting I worked on yesterday at Descanso Gardens’ Carriage House Gallery. I did a good part of it during the day while I gallery-sat, then finished the rest at home in the evening.

The place is the upper Arroyo Seco, north of Devil’s Gate Dam – AKA “Hahamongna Park.” When the weather starts to turn the river-loving willow trees turn yellow and big puffy clouds billow over the San Gabriel Mountains, as they did a few days ago. But the graceful eucalyptuses continue to provide a gray-green accent, year round.

Today I worked on a still life painting, which I will try to finish up this evening or in the next few days.

Although I am used to painting every day, the experience of demonstrating for the public every day has been good for me. The response has been positive and people really seem to enjoy seeing art as it is being made. If you’re in Southern California, I hope you can come up for a visit before the show ends at 4 pm October 11!

  1. I think Gauguin has been to this spot – those mountains certainly remind me of his painting. Lovely work. Have a good week.

  2. The series of oils are really lovely. I’m still harassing the “cherries” in a bowl in my painting. Everyone thinks they’re grapes. Grrr. Haven’t EVEN thought of doing water or anything very realistic. And I so understand what you mean about the road not taken. I’d better get taking more lessons!
