Sunrise over the San Gabriels Coloring Book

Inspired by nature’s power to inspire and heal, artist Renée Fox’s mural Sunrise over the San Gabriels, created in 2021, invites visitors to the Olive View Restorative Care Village in Sylmar to contemplate the splendor of the local landscape and native flora and fauna. The 20 x 40-foot site-specific mural, hand-painted with lightfast Keim mineral paint on multiple shaped aluminum panels, is designed to unite the natural site and modern architecture of this residential campus.

Throughout Fox’s coloring book are illustrations, which capture the native birds, plants, and butterflies of the San Gabriel foothills. The artist hopes that her mural and this coloring book will inspire curiosity and exploration of the natural world outside, from the native plants of the Restorative Care Village gardens to the many trails leading over the San Gabriel wilderness.
