Our South Pasadena watering trough is officially Cultural Heritage Monument No. 7. Designed by Norman Marsh, and presented to the city in 1907, it's titled "The Watering Trough and Wayside Station". It was a rest stop for people and horses as they traveled between Los Angeles and Pasadena.
I've painted many times in this location, once the center of South Pasadena, but I hadn't painted the horse trough before. Two paint-out friends were painting in this area so it was time to try it. It was nice day and the lighting on the stones caught my eye.
