This mini-scape folk art painting depicts a of view from the sea toward historic La Valencia hotel and Scripps Park, La Jolla, California. 

Here is the inspiration photo, but I also used Google maps.  (Even though I don't keep to realism in the painting, I do like to know what the reality of the image is before I completely alter it!)

Little Folk Art Roller Coaster-Not For Sale

Title:  Little Folk Art Roller Coaster
Size: 6x6x1.5
Medium: Oil over acrylic on stretched linen.
Date: 3/17/14
To enlarge, click on image.  For more information and views, click here.

View toward Mission Bay and Beach and historic Belmont Park's, wooden roller coaster (The Big Dipper), built in 1925.  On July 4, 1990, a ceremony was held to officially recognize the Dipper as a National Historical Monument.

The inspiration for this painting is this great photo I saw online. 

It is a bit blurry but I could see enough to want to re-imagine it as a little folk art painting.  If you click on the photo to enlarge it , you can see the red roofs and roller coaster in the background and the West Mission Bay Drive bridge in the center foreground.

Red is a tricky oil color to work with and even trickier to photograph.  So I will provide a little narration.  The reds in Valentine consist of warm and cool tones, from deep blue-red to orange-red, darker and lighter red shades along with chartreuse, dark ultramarine and light blues.

Happy Valentines!
