32nd St. Canyon by artist Allan Rothero 1987 SD CA

This gorgeous “plein air” oil painting was painted by artist Allan Rothero. The view is from our South Park/Burlingame home’s yard looking east across the Canyon.

I’d like to honor these two fine artists that inspired me so much.
Having grown up with these works has been a true joy.
Neither of them really exhibited much. I feel they approve of their works going out into the world now!
I will be posting more of my Great Uncle Allan’s, along with Great Granny Margaret Kyle-Roxburgh’s beautiful artwork over the next few months.

    I think I met your great uncle many years ago as he was a friend of my Grandfather – I assume Allan originated from Birmingham UK? I think I actually have a painting of his in my loft

  2. Yes Allan was from the UK. Thanks very much for sending the photo of his landscape!

    Your uncle was a dear friend that we unfortunately lost track of over the years. I still have one of the paintings of his that we treasure.

    Your uncle was a wonderful gardener and took care of my grandmothers gardening in la Jolla and then my moms.

  5. Hi Lisa, Nice to hear from you. Allan was a really fine man and a fantastic artist.
    His garden in Pacific Beach was a beauty also. I’m so happy you have a painting of his.
