Image of the Week, 8-27-14

It's been a while since I've posted but after a productive summer of focusing on paintings from the "Houses" series I'm starting up the "Image of the Week" again. These images are from a recent trip to Disney Concert Hall with an old friend Georges Le Chevallier. Georges and I met in a painting class and became great friends. Not long after graduating he moved to the east coast and we've only seen each other a handful of times over the last 25 years. But a few weeks ago I got a Facebook message that he would be visiting from North Carolina for one day. So I dropped everything and spent a few hours hanging out with my old friend. It's been 15 years since he was here in California and he wanted to see the Frank Gehry designed concert hall, so after a lunch stop at Philippe french dip, we headed over and spent the afternoon checking it out.

Image of the Week, 6-2-14

Todays image-s of the week are from this past weekend. On Friday I went on a 5 hour hike up Harding Canyon with a friend. The canyon is located in the Cleveland National Forest of Southern California. It was a fun hike even though it was fairly hot and there was a lot of poison oak along the trails. Luckily the stream is almost dry so we were able to use it when the paths were too overgrown. The water that remains in the stream is full of newts and the occasional snake ( not sure which kind ). We also saw several signs of Mountain Lions including paw prints and claw marks near the stream. This hike is probably best during the early spring when the stream has more water and it's a bit cooler. I'm not sure what kind of flowers these are so if you know leave a comment - thanks!
