Rose Bowl Pasadena January Painting by Karen Winters

January 2nd, 2011

SOLD

Rose Bowl, with San Gabriel Mountains, in January
8 x 10 inches
oil on linen panel

See more Pasadena paintings here

The Rose Bowl is an imposing structure any time of year, but when the San Gabriel Mountains are dusted with snow, as they often are in January, it provides an extra-special backdrop. When the air is cold enough, the snow falls at altitude, but down in the Arroyo Seco, it provides welcome rain. Welcome except on January 1, that is.

I thought about putting in some people in red or purple or gold or blue jackets, but it occurred to me that if someone wanted this painting as a keepsake of a special bowl game that they might prefer to have a few people in THEIR colors, rather than the, um, rival team. Sound fair?

  2. My only thot on the above beyond the timeliness is the letters “Rose Bowl” are lit in gold at nite.

    Otherwise, HNYr 2011!

  3. But it’s a daytime picture, so they weren’t lit up!

  4. … some of us would be partial to the purple, though …

  6. Karen–

    Happy New Year. Your Rose Bowl painting is nice. The Rose Bowl setting in Arroyo Seco is one of the LAs awesome sites. In particular, when the rain has cleaned things up in the valley and snow has capped the mountains it is super spectacular. I have attended games during days like you discribed.
