#dailygratitude - a lovely day


Lovely day.

Under a tree.

Taking in beauty.

Brilliant sun.

Shadows retreat.

Colors glowing.

History calls.

Artist listens.

A painting is born.

Title : “The Gamble House”


Oil on canvas

15”x 30”


Prints available on request


The backstory:

Another lovely day outdoors resulted in this “en pleinair” painting. I found myself lost in a moment of history—imagining who lived here and what their lives were like. It’s funny, but I can still smell the fresh green grass and feel the warm sunshine.

“The Gamble House in Pasadena, California, is an outstanding example of American Arts and Crafts style architecture. The house and furnishings were designed by architects Charles and Henry Greene in 1908 for David and Mary Gamble of the Procter & Gamble Company.

The house, designated a National Historic Landmark in 1978, is owned by the City of Pasadena and operated by the University of Southern California.”
