A month or so ago the Saturday paint-out group met in a quaint neighborhood of South Pasadena. Since I've lived in South Pasadena for many years I'm always noticing views that might be fun to paint so it was a treat to have our city as the location. This area of the town is the oldest section and still shows its rustic roots...very picturesque to plein air painters of course. But, sometimes it's hard to decide what to paint. There is a wonderful alley but I didn't see where I could be out of the way. Plus a barking dog just didn't want a painter there. After walking around for quite awhile looking for a view to try, I settled on the space between two homes with lots of great details. I always like palm trees, cacti, and telephone lines!
