Trip to San Francisco


Right, I didn't really GO to SF but, inspired by Bill Guffey I visited via Google Earth and did this watercolor of a building on Barbary Coast Road, which is a main drag in SF. So here it is.
Another thing I have to do is repost my Sunshine Award which I was supposed to pass on to 12 other bloggers and which I received again from Kelley MacDonald. I only listed three but no matter, since I have a file of links that I've collected from my travels through the blogosphere. Stay tuned.

Oh Mary, I love this one. It makes me wish I were a)rich and could buy it; b)smart and could paint it or c)able to leave comments that aren't either sucky or smarmy or both

Another winner! The trees are wonderful, and I love just the suggestion of the cars.

I love the virtual traveling! You can go anywhere now and still be in your pajamas.
it's great how you simplified the view and distilled it down.

Lovely colors, especially considering your reference was Google Earth. Very nice painting!

I wonder what happened to MY comment? Oh well, eaten by Blogger! I love the idea of a virtual vacation! And I also love your delicate touch with watercolor! I can't go back and forth from oil to watercolor - acrylic is hard enough! I'll leave that to you and John Singer Sargent!
