This one is sold but you can see more Pasadena area paintings here

A stately old eucalyptus grows along Arroyo Drive in South Pasadena, standing guard at the edge of the Arroyo Seco.

October 2010 – exhibited in a California Art Club show at the South Pasadena Gallery, S. Pasadena, CA. The judge was the esteemed CAC Signature artist, Junn Roca.

I have been painting like crazy here, and traveling to paint on location, but I always seem to run out of time to post what I’m doing. Some of the paintings are commissioned works which are surprise gifts for people, so I have to be a little careful about what I put where in this day of social networking and transparency.

We’ve made one recent trip to the eastern Sierra and hope to get a few more trips in soon. Southern California weather has been marked by the same June gloom/grayness that typified our summer. I’m looking forward to making a trip to Santa Barbara to see the Clyde Aspevig show before it closes in February 2011 – he’s among my favorite landscape artists – a list that is growing quite lengthy.

    Another gorgeous Eucalyptus… I do like the overhanging branches and leaves against the glowing foliage, and then that soft blue in the distance. Every time I see a new Euc painting, I think it’s my favorite. I think you must be part tree, Karen, you have an affinity…

    A great painting – made me think how lovely it would be to sit under that tree and gaze at the view.
