Just a few of us returned to Fork Plaza in Pasadena, to paint the fork in the road as well as the 18 foot tall fork. We painted there over three years ago, an early plein air piece for me, The Fork. The fork was put there in 2009 and went through some city politics before it was allowed to stay. The day felt like spring even though it's February, and the view was bright and clear. We painters had several choices of interesting views from the state owned vacant lot where we found our shady spots. There was even a lovely, picturesque alley I hadn't noticed before. But, it was about the fork and I loved all the verticals in my view - the fork, palms, and utility poles.
