"Bus and Taxi"


12x12" oil on masonite

Merci and I went back to the MOMA on Sunday since we didn't have time to check out the art library last weekend. The library is a fun place to relax and rest your legs, the cafe is pretty nice for that too. We mostly looked at photography books. Diane Arbus, William Eggelston and Henry Wessel. I'd never heard of Wessel before, but really liked some of his work. We took the streetcar down Market street which was fun. SF has done a beautiful job restoring a bunch of vintage European and American streetcars. I may just have to paint one.

Beautiful handling of light and shadows. Just love the Ferry Building bathed in sunlight.

I like your work! I like the simplicity, and your sense of color and brushwork is really cool! :)

Wonderful feeling of time of day in this painting, and well-handled warms and cools. Nice.
