Redlands Bowl, Redlands, Ca.

The Redlands Bowl. I have a lot of fond memories over the years of taking friends and family out for a beautiful evening of music and entertainment at the Redlands Bowl. And for 75 years this is free to anyone who wants to attend!

Today a group of us who are painting the Redlands Parks for the Redlands Conservancy show at RAA went to the Redlands Bowl. Smiley Park is on the group of sights for us to paint. As you recall some time back I painted Smiley Library. I believe it was in May. The Library is situated to the right of the Bowl. The beautiful Redlands Post Office is down the street about 1/2 block another beautiful building in Redlands that I want to paint to add to my collection of Redlands paintings.

It was a very warm day in Redlands today. Here it is Nov. 12 and I am sure it was 90 degrees and they say it will be warmer tomorrow. All in all a perfect day for painting and I am not complaining.

What I really liked about the scene I chose today was the shadows on the bleachers in front of the Bowl. The huge trees were behind me where I was set up to paint, keeping me cool all morning. They made for a very good composition as the top of the trees point you right towards the bowl. Sometimes you just get lucky!

Until next time, ENJOY THE ART! Terry d. Chacon
