THE RED and WHITE CONSPIRACY

  1. Downtown Sacramento Old Town – some of my fellow Door conspirators  will be happy these doors are red. I’m not so much a conspirator in doors as much as in painting. My favorite red is Cadmium Red Deep Hue – it’s in between orange red of tomatoes and Bordeaux red which leans to purple
    One door for humans and above for loading. One of the original Gold Rush buildings, probably built shortly after 1850, now in Old Town Sacramento.

2. It gets more complicated when one of the (my) goals in painting is a “clean  or white” look.
No muddy,  not even in-between colors but pure red, pure ultramarine blue,  and pure Titian white. Don’t know what amazed me more about this unrivalled beauty: the white clean rocks, or the immensely red ones when in  Bryce Canon and Zion Nat. Park  in Utah!

4. One of our own white roses from when we had a front yard, from the archives. The rose is a creamy white, but my favorite white to paint is an
Unassuming Titian white

    I really like the red doors with the black shutters. I also like the white rose.

  2. I love that creamy rose, and the red doors.

  3. jesh stg says:

    Thank you, Deborah! This evening driving home from the Thai (because of hubs’s b’day) I saw”everyone” had already all their Xmas lights up – except for our street. Do you have yours up?

  4. Oh Happy Belated Birthday to J!

    What a great place to dine. #1 Grandson has been asking to go there. It’s his favorite place to eat while in that town.

    I’ve noticed several houses and storefronts with their Christmas lights up already too. No, we don’t have ours up. I will take down the Thanksgiving decorations next week. I don’t usually put up our Christmas decorations until the first week of December. Sometimes I don’t take them down until after Jan. 1st. Other times I want to put it all away the day after Christmas. 🙂

    When do you put yours up?

    Love those red doors and you really covered a few memes! You asked about the size of the Bobcat in my photo. It was probably about twice as big as a Tomcat. Its legs are quite long. When I saw it sitting there looking at me I momentarily thought it was a medium-sized dog.

  6. becca givens says:

    Beautiful collection!

  7. Tamar says:

    Love the red door in the brick!

  8. jesh stg says:

    Am trailing waayy behind you, lol/ Also I don’t decorate for Thanksgiving, because for about 20 years we left before to go to our kids up North and came back after. It depends when I have my Christmas tree up (am early if it’s 2 weeks before Christmas) – I wait at least three weeks before taking it down – often mid- or close to the end of January!

  9. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Dan – it’s for this Thurs. (doors) !

  10. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Becca – have a beautiful week!

  11. Fun colors! I love the candle in particular.

  12. Ruth says:

    Great photos! They remind me I have never been to Sacramento. Also, I went to Zion more than 10 years ago. It is time to go back.

  13. bettyl - NZ says:

    Lovely and diverse shots! They all have their own beauty and deserve to be photographed.

  14. Melody62 says:

    Lovely images in beautiful entries Jesh, and thank you for teaching me a new English word 😉

    Have a ♥-warming ABC-Wednes-day / -week

    Thank you Ruth! Since I lived in the Los Angeles area, Sacramento seems more like a “town” (lol). The more modern malls are in the suburbs like Roseville, Folsom, and El Dorado Hills. Although Old Town Sacramento is worth visiting, even though it’s just a few streets. San Francisco though has more of a city feeling (to me). My view may be from Bryce Canon, although I like Zion better. The rock formations are even more stunning than in Bryce.

    Beautiful candle.

  17. riitta k says:

    Beautiful photos. The Sunday are has an awesome shape!

  18. riitta k says:

    … typing error…. Sunday tree!

  19. jesh stg says:

    You are welcome, Melody! Had the Dutch word in mind, so I had to look up if an English translation of ongeevenaard existed,lol:)

  20. Roger Green says:

    watch that 1st step!

    ROG, ABCW

  21. Love your motifs! Not least the water lilies. The sky looks like a painting.

  22. Kelleyn says:

    I love the old photo at the top! A perfect place to do photos!

  23. Dan Antion says:

    I know I’ve been here, but I really do like those doors and shutters 😉

  24. Lovely choices for your post today, Jesh. I love that old building and its doors. I visited Huntington Gardens a few years ago while visiting our daughter. What a place! When I visited this summer, I went to Descanso Gardens and loved it. No Christmas decorations yet, as I’ve been too busy with extra shifts at work and things at home. Hopefully a few will go up today, but I never put any up until after Thanksgiving.

    Geez! you are such an amazing artist — you not only find the beauty but you know how to take the pictures, from what angle, etc, so that their beauty is indeed captured, for forever, in these photos. What all amazing shots. I don’t know which one is best.

    I have entered your meme. I hope I entered it correctly. Can you please check.

    I am very much interested in art, and I do painting as well — acrylic and oil are my favorite medium. So, I would be interested in your art blogging, and also participating if I can do/find anything relevant.

  26. Norm 2.0 says:

    Love those red doors! Nice find 🙂

  27. Angie says:

    The creamy white of that rose is lustrous – like a scoop of vanilla ice cream …

  28. I now want to paint something in white. 🙂

  29. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Norm, are you now totally healed up?

  30. Yep, I was very happy with those Sacramento red doors, Jesh. I love that shot of the pond at Huntington Gardens, too.

  31. prior.. says:

    enjoyed the post and the doors – in red – are extra interesting with the loading door.
    I forgot that old buildings have those doors – and maybe we need them again (we struggled to get king size bed up our stairs – almost did not make it…)

  32. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Yvette! Haha, where’s the right door when need it, eh?

  33. Debbie Smyth says:

    Lovely post Jesh, as always. And oh I must get to Sacramento!

  34. jesh stg says:

    We went at least a few times a year to the Huntington gardens. One of the most beautiful times is spring when there is a whole lane of Camellias blooming g in all kinds of colors.
    Interesting that you say that – here in California the stores have put up their Christmas decorations later than a few years ago (but the digital stores are still gang ho with Black Friday sales). I keep my decoration simple, because I keep thinking of the job of cleaning it all back up, lol!
    Just take it one day at a time, Janet. If you get to it, great, but if you don’t, next year better:):)

  35. jesh stg says:

    Thanks! No rush, Debbie, there are more intriguing cites than Sacramento, like Pasadena, Santa Barbara,- 4 hrs, and San Diego approx 3, from LA-center, depending on traffic -actually the last one has some very neat parts. Let me know if you come to California to give you more details.

  36. Peter B says:

    Beautiful sky shot and I love those red doors!! Have a nice weekend.

  37. James says:

    Superb post! I enjoyed seeing the photos! 🙂

  38. nannie2four says:

    I love how you post several fotos, each linking to a different meme! Thank you so much for joining in Friday Foto Friends! HOPE you’re having a great weekend!

  39. I do love red doors. The tone of these are lovely. I have a penchant for roses on the cream spectrum. My father-in-law grew roses before his passing. I always loved his Peace Rose, which is a cream with an iridescence of colors that reminds me of an opal. They were often blooming when I would vacation to their home and upon my departure, he would cut a bloom to travel home with me. Lovely photos. 🙂

  40. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Amy! Admittedly, the tone of red is edited in Photoshop. Happy this rose reminded you on someone significant in your life, with a love for roses. In our previous house we did a front yard makeover and tI think his rose came from one of the 6 rose bushes hubby planted there. By the way, how are thing going for you?

  41. Mascha says:

    Wow, that is pretty with the red doors! And most I like the tree…
    I prefer clear clean colors too and not making “soup” with them all…
    Thanks for joining, greetings from snowy Germany

  42. Hello Jesh… I really enjoyed this post and the creamy rose…. Michelle
