This is Mt. Rubidoux Peace Tower




We go back to Riverside for this entry with a special look at a very special landmark,  Mt.  Rubidoux Peace Tower.


This is Mt. Rubidoux Peace Tower

You can see this print directly on our online store at http://www.dononeill.com/peace-tower/


Don painted this watercolor in 2006, shortly before his passing in 2007, as one of a series of Peace Tower paintings. It is one of the final works of his career, making it a very special painting. This particular work contrasts the cool background and sky with the warm hues of the foliage and sunlight falling on the bridge.  If you ever get the opportunity to browse around private collections you may see some of Don's other versions of Peace Tower with nearly identical composition but the drastically different color palette and hue.   Don took a few artistic liberties with this piece such as making the road appear more natural when in reality it was paved in the early 1900s with some of the earliest road paving machines.

In 1906, Mt. Rubidoux was originally built as Huntington Park and was built under the leadership of Frank Miller, owner of the Mission Inn, along with Henry E. Huntington and Charles M. Loring as a park to benefit the community of Riverside.   The Peace Tower was constructed in 1925 as a dedication to Frank Miller.    In 1955 the Huntington Park was donated by Frank Miller's heirs to the City of Riverside where it was renamed Frank A. Miller Mount Rubidoux, Memorial Park.


You can see this print on our online store at DonONeill.com and we produce it in four different sizes with each one individually printed on archival grade watercolor paper.  When properly framed the print will look nearly identical to the original painting and will hold its vivid color for decades.   I would like to put a giclee print of this beautiful painting into your home or office so here are some great deals I will be offering between now and Monday, June 3rd, 2019.
