Time to Shine – Pasadena City Hall rainy night painting

“Time to Shine”
Pasadena City Hall, rainy night
14 x 18 inches, oil

This is a theme I have painted a couple of times before, each in different sizes and shapes, because I just enjoy painting reflections so much, and the Spanish colonial architecture provides a stunning image. The city hall is 83 years old and is in the National Registry of Historic Places. It was built with inspiration from the 16th century Italian architect Palladio. I paint from a photograph, of course, as standing in the rain in the middle of the street on a dark night is not very safe.

November Bloom – Lone Pine Eastern Sierra oil painting


“November Bloom”
20 x 24 oil painting
Eastern Sierra, Lone Pine, Mt. Whitney Portal area

Time and again I return to this area of the Eastern Sierra where the Mt. Whitney Portal road crosses the Owens Valley and leads up to the trailhead to Mt. Whitney. Many of my collectors have climbed that awesome peak once or more. November brings out a wonderful wildflower show which is worth seeing in person.
This painting was intended to be a centerpiece of spring 2020 shows, before the pandemic got in the way.

Colorado Street Bridge, Pasadena – with poppies – oil painting

“Colorado Street Bridge with Poppies” 16 x 20 inches, oil on linen panel

Well, I spent a good part of the fall and winter getting ready for spring shows, only to have them all be cancelled due to this terrible pandemic we’re experiencing. But I am still keeping very busy in the studio, and hoping that things will be back to normal for later on in the summer and fall.

In the meantime, I’m enjoying the time to study, explore new subject material and to continue to create without the pressure of pressing deadline.

This new painting features Pasadena’s iconic Colorado Street Bridge from a new (for me) angle, including a bonus of California poppies, which used to grow in profusion in the San Gabriel Valley.

This painting is available now, and we can certainly work out a safe method of purchase if you or someone you know is interested in owning it.
