Curator's Note: An authentic take on an iconic view, this artist painted San Francisco as a San Franciscan.
I painted this picture of the Golden Gate Bridge standing on the roof of my Nob Hill apartment. It was a rare, calm, fog free, spring afternoon in San Francisco. From this distance, the bright red bridge barely showed its color. I was also surprised to see how green the water appeared. This painting is on a canvas board, so framing is optional.
The day I walked into my first painting class changed the way I see the world. I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me. I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor. I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece. Painting is my reward.
