A New Day
8×15″ charcoal on Rives BFK
I headed out for a Tuesday Artist Date yesterday. We were meeting up at the end of Lake Avenue. My spirits were high. The day was glorious and bright. This was my second time coming to this site, and I had great expectations. There is so much to explore in this area as the seasons change. Yes… we do have a change of season, here in SoCA. We just don’t have to change our wardrobe for it.
This is The Cobb Estate. Burned years ago in a fire, and now protected by the Forest Service. It is a haven for mountain bikers, hikers, dogs, and artists. At the top of Echo Mtn., was a hotel, also burned. However, the remains of the hotel are still there. As well as the gears from a tram, that went from the hotel, to the top of Lake Avenue.
My view this day, is with my back to the old estate. I am looking out over the valley, towards downtown Los Angeles.
