Pasadena Federal Court of Appeals Painting – Karen Winters

September 6th, 2008

Pasadena Court of Appeals – former Vista Del Arroyo Hotel
11 x 14 acrylic
SOLD

This stately building has become the federal court of appeals in Pasadena, California, but it was formerly the Vista Del Arroyo Hotel. I’ve painted it once before in my sketchbook, but this was an opportunity to portray it from a different angle and at a different time of day. In the distance the San Gabriel Mountains catch the late afternoon light. The foreground sycamores are starting to turn color, an early sign of fall.

  1. What an appealing building! In such a lush setting. It’s rather different from the Court of Appeals in Suva, a very grey cement/stone building we sat or lounged in front of to meet up with family for the Hibiscus Festival. A grotty kind of place with a few frocked up lawyers climbing the steps while the ordinary people like us sat upon low stone walls and munched on roti and curry parcels.
