Huntington Gardens

It was a beautiful day at Huntington Gardens in Pasadena,CA 
My nephew and I strolled through Art, Gardens, and Library collections

Enjoy the sites and maybe someday you'll be able to visit......and Happy New Year!

Walks through the Gardens.........

"Campo Santo"  Maynard Dixon   oil 
Henrietta Shore...a pioneer of Modernism .. ... I love her work for obvious reasons...she studied with Robert Henri and was close friends with Edward Weston. She lived in Los Angeles  CA for a while,,,Weston was quoted as saying "Every time I see that cactus, I have renewed emotion, its a great painting"
"Still Life with Green Chair" Roger Medearis    1950    Egg Tempera on Board

so many rare delights for the book artist 

a color guide for White of the color formulas reads
 Purplish White: Animal- junction of the neck and back of a Kitliwake Gull; Vegetable- white Geranium or Stork's Bill; Mineral- Arragonite .....I'm so glad I have tubes of paint ready made!
