Bay Bridge, 12 x 12 inches, oil on linen
Here's another 12 x 12 San Francisco-scape. It's an odd little composition, what with the top and the bottom being the same size and shape and all. It doesn't bother me as much as it should. Maybe I'm in denial. Or may be I've been looking at Inness too much.
Originally, the background was a lot bluer, and it looked really good to me, but then I got to thinking, it looked too pretty, so I grayed it down. I don't know why that should be a problem, but it just didn't sit well with me. I guess I just like grime and grit, even when depicting a pretty place like San Francisco.
