We were at Grant Park in Pasadena in late July. Hard to believe it was almost two years ago when I was painting there for my first time, posted in Grant & Singer. It's a busy park with lots of neighborhood kids visiting the cool playground, complete with a rope climber. I didn't have too much time for the morning paint-out so I tried a small gouache piece. I was inspired by the conventional, linear apartment building across the street contrasted by the pretty, blooming crepe myrtle trees...and two palm trees completing the scene.
