Myrtle Avenue Revisited

It seems I've revisited many local locations for paint-outs with several different groups.  So, as mentioned in my Myrtle Avenue post, I returned to Monrovia's Library Park a month later with another plein air group.  There are always new subjects and vistas to choose.  Even alleys are sometimes interesting but finding shade is usually a problem.  For my visit in January, I couldn't resist looking north along Myrtle Avenue at the hazy mountains and three striking palm trees.  It was a busy street corner and we had quite a few people stopping by to comment.  A newspaper photographer even took some photos of the group and our paintings.  We don't know if we made the paper.
