"California Street"

6 x 6"

oil on masonite


The steep streets of San Francisco are pretty mindblowing to me. I do know, I'd never rent a car. I just don't have the guts for that. And I can't say that I love painting cars either, but they're part of any big city and they do give you a sense of the depth and angles of the streets, especially in the city of San Francisco.

There is no doubt about the city of this painting. You've really captured the severe incline of the San Francisco street. The trolly just going over the top of the hill is great. Nice painting! Wonderful subject.
