La Canada Angeles Crest Landscape Oil Painting – Karen Winters

July 3rd, 2009

“Snow on the Crest”
16 x 20 oil on canvas

This is a view into the Crescenta Canada Valley from a high road in Flintridge, near the Sacred Heart Academy. The 210 freeway can be seen on the left as it passes the upper Arroyo Seco. The mountains are the San Gabriel range. Last winter, a snowstorm left a dusting of snow on the Angeles Crest Forest. It only lasted a few days but I had the opportunity to take some early morning pictures of this rare occurrence. By the next day, most of the snow had vanished.

Now that the temperatures have reached the high 90s locally, I thought it was a good time to think about something cool.

  1. Ah, my favorite painting. Hmmm. Guess I can go back and count many favorite paintings. :) I do like the distance, textures and colors in this. Nice work. It is nice to see the cool mountains now. It was 110 here a couple of days ago. Ouch!

  3. Oh yes. The heat is on! And my daughter is still waiting for her pool to get done that’s been in the making for 3 summers now. Nightmare of a company!

    This is a great painting. I love the near to far vista. I saw those snow-capped mountains this year. My granddaughter wanted to go up to them soooo badly but didn’t get to.
