Description
The subject of this painting depicts the northern segment of California Interstate 110 passing the town of Highland Park and heading south to Los Angeles. This section of the freeway is also known as the historic Arroyo Seco Parkway, a 6.8-mile scenic route that connects Pasadena to Los Angeles and the first freeway built in the western United States (1935). Both sides of the Arroyo Seco Parkway are lined with established sycamore and oak trees and old craftsmen bungalows that together present a glimpse into a bygone era. Tony Peters' interest in this scene is in capturing the early morning quiet before the rush traffic begins. Peters focuses on a moment of self-reflection, as emphasized by the lone pedestrian on the bridge.
