Colorado Street Bridge – Pasadena – Spring Stroll oil painting

“Spring Stroll – Colorado Street Bridge, Pasadena – Arroyo Seco”
9 x 12 inches, oil on plein air panel

Weather is funny in Southern California. Winter may just be starting, and green grass is popping up everywhere, because of the early December rains.
Around here, plants don’t care about the calendar. If there’s water, they’ll grow – creating the illusion of spring when there are months of cold weather ahead.
My ash tree looks like it’s living in mid-summer. There’s not a touch of fall in it yet. I’m not sure what it’s going to do in a few months. Shed the old leaves out of habit? Or keep them and ignore the deciduous ritual?
Down in Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco, the grass is sprouting joyfully and the little stream is flowing. We will enjoy it while it lasts.

Arroyo Impression – Pasadena Colorado Street Bridge oil painting

SOLD  – Arroyo Impression
12 x 16 inch
original oil painting of Pasadena’s
Colorado Street Bridge

The Colorado Street bridge in the Arroyo Seco is one of my favorite painting subjects, and I continue to find new ways to see it and to interpret it. This impressionist treatment conbines two points of view that are somewhat difficult to see simultaneously, but I think it’s faithful to the subject of both the bridge and the San Gabriel Mountains. The time of year is springtime, not so very far away with our recent rains.
