Morning Light at Pasadena City Hall

"Morning Light at Pasadena City Hall"
watercolor (22" x 30")

There's nothing like scouting around with camera in capture that perfect image to paint.  Mornings and dusk are the best time...light diffusing in and long shadows cast.  I remember when I took this photo, it was early, the courtyard was quiet, the fountain splashing, and the shadows cool. I remember thinking to myself, as I started to see the 9-to-5er's reporting to work,....this wouldn't be a bad place to work at.

Thanks to all who came to the Sierra Madre Art Fair last weekend, it was great to see familiar faces and meet new friends.  I had so much fun that I have decided to do the Montrose Art Walk this Saturday (May 8th) 9:00 A.M. - 4:00 P.M.  It will be located on Honolulu Avenue in Montrose, Ca 91020. (exit off the 210 freeway on Oceanview Blvd south). Hope to see you there!
