This is a painting I did in July and August 2002. The location is under the 134 Freeway looking south toward the Colorado Blvd. Bridge as it passes over the Arroyo in Pasadena, California. It's a ridiculously hot time of the year here, especially down in the Arroyo, and I tried to convey that with the contrasting sun baked colors in the background against the cool shade of the foreground. It's oil on canvas and measures 16" x 20". The owner is a highly regarded Pasadena resident.
