San Francisco Street 16 x 8 on Panel


This is the current challenge for DSFDF . It is a scene from the beautiful city of San Francisco. I believe my mother and I might have walked up this street since it felt like we were walking for miles when we went there years ago for a vacation. When we went it was in the month of August and it was cold and they had record rains. At least we can still laugh about it and we had a wonderful time!

I decided to do this painting using a palette knife like the scene a few months ago from another challenge with a street scene from NY. This was a lot of fun to do and a challenge with the perspective of the street, buildings and telephone poles. I think I accomplished what I set out to do in this challenge.
