A View of San Francisco

I moved to the city a little over 3 years ago and still have not experienced it all. Although San Francisco is not a large city it is a very busy and very culturally diverse city and there is always something new to experience here.

I did not start painting San Francisco right away, actually it took me 3 years to start. But now that I have begun to paint this city, I know that there is an endless supply of work coming that will keep me busy for a very long time.  A wide variety of architecture from many periods and some very prominent architects as well. Some people find the variety unappealing, I am just the opposite, the diversity of Victorian and Art Deco mixed with Modern makes for a very interesting backdrop for all of the eclectic people who live and visit this city. The unique weather patterns and the clarity of the air along with the beautiful Northern California Coast create drama and light that make for very beautiful paintings and drawings. Also there are so many attractions and historic sites to see here. My goal is to document memories of one of the most beautiful and fun cities in the world.

To see all of my paintings on San Francisco and other locations go to: www.passionsatplay.com/ On Location

You can buy cards and prints of many of these images at the California Welcome Center at PIER 39

other locations are coming soon!

Peace, Love, and Prosperity, requires Creativity!
