Recently I was painting at the City of Pasadena's Central Library. It's a beautiful spot to visit. Built in the 1920's by noted Southern California architect Myron Hunt, it's a landmark building. The day our paint-out group was there, the gorgeous blue and white Agapanthus, Lilies of the Nile, were blooming along a walkway. They were so pretty, I had to give them a try. And there was a bench to paint from in the shade! In the same planters there were some Bird of Paradise plants to add some background orange highlights. It was a warm day and some painters went inside to do some drawing. I might try that on my next visit.
