We had a beautiful morning and a lot of options for a recent paint-out in Pasadena. Our location was the "lower Arroyo Seco". The last time I painted there was when the special, huge, white Matilija poppies were blooming which I posted in More Matilijas! This is quite an extensive area with views of our beautiful old bridges, and the casting pond, or pool. There is one small building which is the home of the Pasadena Casting Club. It seems to be very active, and when I arrived two volunteers were weeding and planting some decorative plants, hoping the gophers wouldn't eat them. I think the casting pond has such a mysterious, peaceful look. It's a wonderful shade of green, reflecting the surrounding trees, so I had to try a watercolor. The water changed constantly, a challenge!
