“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.

This painting is quite special to me as it was the 1000th one I completed. I thought I had posted it on my blog last year, but discovered that I missed it.
If you’ve been to Yosemite Valley, you’ll recognize the view from Sentinel Bridge, with Half Dome reflected in the calm waters. With our current snowmelt, I’m guessing that the Merced River is anything but calm right now.
