"No. 1811"

4 x 12"
oil on masonite

I have this love affair with San Francisco's vintage cable cars - especially the No. 1811, an Italian-made car built in 1928.  As we were crossing the Embarcadero to the Ferry Building, here came the No. 1811, clang, clang, clang.

This painting takes me back to my last trip to San Fransisco. The cable cars are one of my favorite things about going to SF. It really is a fun city. Thanks for sharing.

#1811 is sweet, but the towering palms and blue street lights behind her make this memorable. I love SF!
