Pasadena – Colorado Street Bridge – Arroyo Seco – Karen Winters Daily Painting

November 10th, 2007

Colorado Street Bridge 5″ x 7″ oil on canvas panel
SOLD

The Colorado Street bridge, which spans the Arroyo Seco was the inspiration for this small impressionist painting. I’ve done plein air paintings in the arroyo many times and it is always a joy to be there. The beautiful sculptural arches frame a wide variety of California flora and fauna. (Remember the duck family?) Cottonwoods are turning color now and the eucalyptuses are as green and graceful as always.

Many years ago we needed a film shot representing falling in a nightmare and we lowered a small camera off the bridge. The effect was dizzying! If the bridge police are reading this, I can assure you it was at least 20 years ago and no eucalyptus trees were harmed in the process. And you can bet that the camera was safely tethered off, too. So that bridge will always have a special meaning for me.

  1. Oh, this is so great. Those trees in the back are waving, “Hi!”, like the kids in the back row of class pictures that are sort of hamming it up. At least that’s what I’m seeing… Great work, Karen. :)

  2. I just love this one. What an amazing feeling of height and space! Your other paintings are wonderful too but this is my favorite!

  3. You’ve captured and simplified the bridge beautifully. I’d love to return to Pasadena and do some sketching and painting. I’ll have to make do in Texas!
