Here is a painting I don’t think I have posted online before. This was a quick sketch executed on location in the Marina district here in SF on Chestnut street. This piece was executed during my ‘first exile’ when I was laid off from my sandwich making job and determined I wouldn’t look for another job, I would just paint. I managed to sell this painting to a real estate salesman who wanted art to decorate a house for sale. I like this painting; the form and color of the facade, marquee and vestibule are satisfying; but the perspective seems to get a little skewed with the gray building on the right side, and the signature seems a tad prominent.
