Golden Hour – California Art Club show -Pasadena Women’s City Club

May 17th, 2008

“Golden Hour”
14 x 18 oil on canvas
SOLD to a collector from Claremont

So here’s the other painting that was accepted into the California Art Club show at the Women’s City Club in Pasadena.

It represents a few moments just before sunset in California’s Central Coast, not far from Paso Robles. I am just thrilled to be in the show for the second consecutive time, on this occasion with two entries, one watercolor, and one oil. (See day before yesterday for my watercolor portrait, “Strength is Beautiful.”

My objective here was to show a more traditional view of Natural Beauty, that of California’s scenic splendor. I thought about choosing one of the frequently selected wonders, like Yosemite or the Sierras, but this commonplace scene of oak woodlands seemed to represent beauty just as well. Perhaps beauty truly is all around us, if we just have eyes to see.

The painting will be displayed for sale at the Women’s City Club in Pasadena until late November.

  2. Not that’s a festival of color. Rather analogous I think, and shows what can be done with such a happy color scheme. Tasteful touches everywhere.
