Gold Line

I'm busy and tired and lazy.  At least to the extent that those things aren't mutually exclusive.  I would kind of like to write something about trains and how perfectly evocative they are.  But it's late, and you already know what you know about trains.  I painted this from a perch on top of the Oaklawn Bridge in South Pasadena.  These are the tracks of the Los Angeles Metro Gold Line light rail.  We're looking south, toward Los Angeles.  Amtrak tracks used to follow this same course.  Once many years ago I was in a student film walking along those tracks and under the Oaklawn Bridge.
