Kindness Moving Forward
I lived in San Francisco for 3.5 years after Austin. The body of work that this painting came from is a love story for the bright beauty and acceptance of the Bay Area. In SF, my work became the colors of the Golden Gate Bridge, the fog, the trees of the Presidio and the heights of Armstrong Woods and Henry Cowell State Park. The silvery edges of Point Reyes and the sunny grassy cliffs of Mendocino.
