For more information about this painting, please write

This is my newest painting, which I took to the South Pasadena Public Library today for display at the annual show featuring scenes of South Pasdena. This year, the theme is City of Trees. Although many people are painting historically significant trees, I have grown fond of this group, framing the Arroyo Seco, which we see on our walks in the area. When the theme of “trees” was announced, I knew just what I wanted to paint.

The following information is from the California Art Club news release about the event:

Location: South Pasadena Public Library Community Room 
1115 El Centro Avenue
South Pasadena, CA 91030

Collectors’ Preview Reception: Friday, October 2, 7 – 9:30 p.m
All submitted artwork will be on display for this special Collectors’ Preview event at the South Pasadena Public Library Community Room. Tickets $25 per person. R.S.V.P. to 626-441-2339  (Participating artists get in free.)

Saturday, October 3, 6 – 10 p.m.
The free exhibition at the South Pasadena Library Community Room continues for one more day as part of SouthPas ArtsFest, featuring live music and entertainment,wine tasting, food court and an ArtWalk featuring eight galleries.

  2. A Vista in every kind of sense, Karen–from the foreground shadows to the soft and misty hills beyond. No one can evoke the spirit of a tree and the atmosphere that they help create as you do. Good luck with the show.
