Somehow during my few years of plein air paint-outs with local groups, I've missed visiting a park or two. Wilderness Park in Arcadia has been on the groups' schedules but something has always come up for me and I couldn't attend the paint-out. Well, one time it was drizzling and I didn't go. I was excited to see the area which is way up in the foothills. It didn't disappoint. The park is just beautiful and the day was lovely too. I like to try to include some sort of structure in my paintings but the nature center and restrooms didn't appeal. I always like utility poles and fences but there wasn't a good spot to paint them from. The steps connecting two levels had some beautiful trees and light, a picnic table to paint from, and unfortunately a red-tagged tree.
