I have questions!
Do I see ocean in your wee video? (I always want to call them wee wideos.) Please to orient me.
No questions about Ms. Hesse. Just interesting and sad.
Did you make the bench? Is it new? Does it look out over the Brookside Golf Course?
Our Editor Responds: Yes on “wee videos” and yes on the “wave” sensation, no on the “bench” and yes on it’s “location.”
I need sites where I can get the full scope of the San Gabriels during the golden hour. Most valued vistas are those that don’t require extensive photoshop hours pulling out power lines. This is a favorite site: Parkview Ave. I contacted Bellis, and she recommended Caltech’s 13th floor library (which I will try out) though I think the ‘imagine’ location will work.
If you ask female artists the name of other female artist from the past that influenced them – it will not be Georia Okeeffe. She’s more of a media darling with a good story. People such as Eva Hesse, Yayoi Kusama, Louise Bourgeois or Ruth Asawa are more likely to come up.
You’ve caught my San Gabriels at sunset – I miss them, although they’re looking very brown. What a clear, unobstructed view of the range you caught, and there’s even a white tablecloth over some of it. I used to sit on that bench to wait for the full moon to rise, which it does as a huge orange ball in the right months. When I first saw this bench , I gave a whoop of delight at the Imagination stone. I guessed the bench was made by a local houseowner. Larry Wilson lives nearby, he’d know. Sad story about the artist’s early death.
Our Editor Responds: that’s a good idea – moon watch. Such a wonderful location too. So glad someone put a bench up. I used it to stand on for the wee vid.
Yeah, this is about my third try. It was a week ago and I was on my way over to ceramics. Just no way could I ignore that sunset – though it really set me back in my commute.
btw – love that artist link you sent me. Inspirational, plus she ended up in a collaboration with Margaret Atwood. So cool.
I know that bench. And find that whole street rather appealing.
Our Editor Responds: agreed
Time to get home and touch those San Gabriels again. Thanks for the pan of the area and for the reminder of Eva Hesse.
Our Editor Responds: They’ve always been home to me. I started this blog with a post about Devil’s Gate Dam and I’m ending it nearby. Apropos.
Always interesting and eye opening.
Our Editor Responds: Interesting, over and out. And just when you retired. We need to get you on Face Book.
I am seeing a tombstone in that rock structure. And then, there are those dates. Are you looking back and forth and back and forth? And then there is that reference to the life and passing of Eva Hesse. Is there a “good-bye” here?
Our Editor Responds: What a fantastic interpretation. It’s perfect! yes, there is an ending to Pasadena Adjacent – but your ‘imaginative’ spin on it is so much more poignant then what was driving me.
I could not understood well… Are you ending Pasadena Adjacent blog?
I don’t know Eva Hesse and thank you for let me know.
Wishing you and yours a Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year.
Our Editor Responds: Thank you. Yes, I am ending my blog. I’ve been doing it for a long time. It now feels tired, so I decided to stop. Happy Holidays to you Sonia!
I will miss your beautiful paintings and videos!
Wishing you and yours loved ones a Wonderful New Year!
