California painting – Arroyo Seco Pasadena Landscape Oil Painting of Federal Courthouse

March 15th, 2010

Snow on the San Gabriels
(Federal Courthouse with view of the Arroyo Seco)
12 x 16 oil on canvas

The winter storms, which may now be over, often leave rare snowcaps on our local mountains – for a few days. I took advantage of one of these unusual scenes last month. This is a view I have painted before, in the autumn when the sycamores are in full color – and will likely paint again through the years with different weather and seasonal looks.
More of my Pasadena area paintings are viewable at Pasadena Paintings

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Casita del Arroyo show yesterday – it was a great day! I’m now looking forward to spring painting in Central California and working on numerous commissioned projects.

  1. I love the cool colors you used for the mountains and the warm colors in the foreground. Really adds to the drama of this beautiful painting.

  2. This kind of scenery is the reason I moved to California from the midwest and your paintings capture the moods very well. I especially like the beauty of the San Gabriel mountains.
