Colorado Street Bridge with Sycamores – Pasadena California impressionist oil painting

“Colorado Street Bridge with Sycamores”
9 x 12 inches, oil on linen plein air panel
Arroyo Seco, Pasadena, California

This California impressionist oil painting celebrates fall in the Arroyo Seco, when the sycamores turn gold. The river that flows through the arroyo is a welcome habitat for this California native tree which thrives on plentiful water. Wherever you see a stream in In colder, higher areas you may see aspen and cottonwoods. There are cottonwoods in the arroyo, too.

Arroyo Hike – Colorado Street Bridge, Arroyo Seco Pasadena oil painting

“Arroyo Hike – Pasadena’s Colorado Street Bridge, Arroyo Seco”
12 x 16 inch oil painting

This is a familiar subject that I return to again and again – exploring the bridge at different times of day, seasons and weather conditions.
It’s never quite the same twice.
The Colorado Street Bridge spans the Arroyo Seco, just downstream from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
It’s a favorite spot for runners and daily walkers alike. Even archers practice their skills nearby.
