Camille encourages shoppers to bring in fashion pieces they already have, so she can mix, match and get the most mileage out of your new finds.

But Jonason has now turned his eye toward landscapes, and today his images of clouds hovering gloriously over local landmarks remind us of only one thing. (The billowing. The looming. The sense of spreading gray mass and creeping orange glow. Tell us you don’t see it.)
That resemblance shouldn’t stop you from checking out his stellar exhibition of 15 paintings in South Pasadena. (Hum it now, a la The Piano Man: “He didn’t start the fire.”)
Jonason told the Star-News:
“I like cumulonimbus (clouds) a lot. They remind me a lot of
tall buildings — tall and dense, they have a big, heroic quality.
Architecture is all about volume and I apply that to the landscapes. At
the same time, I’m trying to get the spiritual, transcendental quality
I feel in landscapes.”
“California Skies” is on display through Sept. 12 at Michael Hollis Fine Art, 238 Pasadena Ave., South Pasadena. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. (626) 441-4333
