Pasadena Colorado Street Bridge – 2007

December 29th, 2007

Pasadena’s Colorado Street Bridge – 8 x 10 oil

SOLD

As the new year approaches, over a million people will make the pilgrimage to Pasadena, California for the Rose Parade. And perhaps one of our most elegant local landmarks is the Colorado Street Bridge, which I’ve painted several times this year and will no revisit in 2008. It spans the Arroyo Seco, along with the 134 freeway bridge, which can be seen in the background.

Now, onto my look back at some of my favorite art from the past year:

July. “Sunset Trail” The Cobb Estate in Pasadena is a wild place in the foothills that is just minutes from the downtown. This painting gave me the opportunity to paint a sunset glow – a theme I’d continue throughout the rest of the year.
August. This painting was done as an entry into a California Art Club juried competition – featuring scenes of Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley area. It’s hanging at Marston’s restaurant right now. I wasn’t doing a lot of architectural subjects at that time, so the challenge was a good one for me.
September. This painting, of Zuma Beach at Malibu, was painted for my first show at the Descanso Gardens Gallery.
October. I got the notification that this painting had been accepted into Watercolor West, a national transparent watercolor show. It’s radically different from other watercolors I’ve done but it was SO much fun to paint. This painting is currently at the Riverside Art Museum in Riverside, California
November. With fall persimmons appearing in the market, I picked up a few and painted a classic realistic still life setup with a complimentary color scheme. This painting is currently at the San Gabriel Fine Arts Association Gallery at the Artist of the Year show..
December. If I had to pick one favorite painting of the year, this might be it Another sunset seascape, but more chromatic than Winging Home. This painting is currently at the Descanso Gardens Art Gallery in La Canada Flintridge.

Coming up soon … a look back at my 2007 art goals, and some new goals for 2008
