Artist’s Notebook – Brookside Golf Course
Oct. 2, 2009, Brookside Golf Course, Marion Eisenmann
|This week, Marion visited a place in Pasadena. |
She writes: It is a section of the golf course, viewed from the north side of the Rose Bowl. I walked inside, and sat down in the shade of a tree overlooking the idyllic scenery with plenty of ducks swimming in the pond, or better phrased a golfer's obstacle. I spotted the location riding my bike a few days ago. I went back today, at the same time, which allowed me to get a similar morning light situation of the place, I felt very at peace.
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.
Marion sends word that her two-week class in Plein Air watercolor painting on Saturdays at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens has been so popular that it may be extended if one or two more people sign up. Further information and registration is available at (626) 405-2128.
