Weather Check

Acrylic on Panel - 9 x 12 inches

You never know what the weather is going to be in SF, from moment to moment, from neighborhood to neighborhood.

I wonder if future generations will wonder why so many paintings from the teens are of solitary figures looking at small rectangular objects in their hands.

Hill Rise

Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 5 inches

Trying to stay focused on color and not detail, I think I've managed to get the most accurate golden straw color yet. The trees, not so much.

Here's one I did on the iPhone later in the day that has more of the feel I was trying to get.

East Wing

Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 6 inches

I tried to simplify wherever possible, but still got mired in the details, so I scraped it off.
A bit looser on the second go, but still not what I was aiming for.

Garden Pathway

Acrylic on Panel - 5 x 7 inches

This was a quick sketch, trying to ignore small details, and staying focused on areas of color. Not as easy as it sounds. I did a few other versions, some before, and some after. Some in ink and some in ArtRage on the iPad.

Want to buy a painting?

Up Alamo

Acrylic on Canvas - 18 x 18 inches

Another view of the edge of Alamo Square Park. I've just discovered that the park is going to be closed for improvements for 9 months (and these things always go long). Could make this whole series more valuable in the interim. Ahem.

Acrylic on Panel - 4 x 6 inches

The neon sign was so cool that they kept it even after the taco place changed to an asian fusion place. They still have one taco on the menu out of respect. I really loved the way it flooded the building with red hot light.
