View from Mount Lowe

unfortunately this view is now most likely a charred mess of blackened trees -- part of the area burned by the "Station Fire" that destroyed a good chunk of the Angeles National Forest. This is near Mount Wilson, which survived the fire.

Grandview and San Fernando

this is right down the street from where I work and after driving past it a thousand times I thought it might make a nice painting. I spent a few hours on a Sunday working on this, getting dust blown into me from passing trains. A few days after I painted this the city came along and trimmed all the extra fronds off the trees, ruining the effect I liked so much about them.
