'C' is for Colorful, neo-Cubist @ Mammoth (abc Wednesday)


The detail of the new homes along the run at Chair 15, reminds me of work by contemporary Southwestern artists/illustrators like Frank Ybarra.

Nice colors!!
The blue looks like snow in the shade!!!or may be it's because I see too much of it here..and my eyes see it everywhere!!!

I thought it was a painting, until I read your comments. Now those colors I like! Maybe because the building has such texture.

I'm over at Pasadena Adjacent now

This is a retina pleaser!
Is Frank the uncle with the tickets? How are you familiar with Mr. Ybarra's work?

I did a (part two) post on Palos Verdes so we are linked again by the Abalone Cove connection. I'm going back to the FY link now.

I love the colours in this picture, but it took me a while to work out that the blue was snow!

Your C is a home run, Tash, and should be hanging on a wall!

Beautiful shot! I just got back from Mexico and that wall reminds me of the houses there.
