Artist's Notebook -- Pasadena

September 19, 2009 | 12:00 am


Castle Green, Pasadena, by Marion Eisenmann
Marion sends her impressions of one of Pasadena's more unusual landmarks, the truncated remains of a bridge -- demolished in 1929 -- over Raymond Avenue that once connected Castle Green with the Hotel Green. Castle Green has been converted to apartments, with ballrooms on the first floor that are frequently used for weddings and receptions.

Note: In case you just tuned in, Marion and I are visiting local landmarks in a project inspired by what Charles Owens and Joe Seewerker did in Nuestro Pueblo. Check back next week for another page from Marion's notebook.

By the way, Daily Mirror readers have asked about buying copies of Marion's artwork. Naturally, this is gratifying because I think Marion's work is terrific, and one of my great pleasures is sharing it with readers every week. We have decided that the project is a journey about discovering Los Angeles rather than creating things to sell. Marion is busy with other projects and says she isn't set up to mass-produce prints but would entertain inquiries about specific pieces. For further information, contact Marion directly.
