San Francisco is one of my favorite cities to visit. Although I searched long and hard online for images of the City by the Bay before even sketching this piece, it was painted in large part out of my sense of it and my feelings about it. That seems to be the only way I can approach these miniscapes. I want to know as much as I can and see as many photos as I can and have as realistic an idea as possible of the area. So that I can then abstract, compress and reinterpret it through my own internal vision of it. It doesn't make sense. But that's what I do. In the end, it looks so simple. But the process really stretches my mind!
