Misty Mountain Vista - Cityscape Street Light Painting – Teale Hatheway


Community​ Sourced Street Light Series
​Acrylic, metal leaf on paper.
17” x 12”

This colorful cityscape painting was inspired by a photo of a light (sent to me), seen while leaving home for a quick grocery run. This was in the very earliest days of the California lockdowns when the skies were crisp and clean. Up against the foothills in La Canada, it was still early Spring. The air was misty and the warm glow of these lanterns contrasted beautifully with the infamous purple-blue of the San Gabriel Mountains. 

The gilded lantern reflects light and gives the impression the light is “turned on.” 

This is an original acrylic, metal leaf and varnish painting on paper.
