As you may know, my heart resides in the City by the Bay.San Francisco, Powell Streetmarks the 19th release in my San Francisco collection, yet this wonderful town continues to provide breathless panoramas even for a seasoned visitor.
Perhaps that's because San Francisco is such a lived-in city. Wherever you look you find dynamic street life - vendors, neighbors, shoppers, and the ever present cable car.
San Francisco, Powell Streetgives me an opportunity to return to the hilltop I first painted in my tremendously popular "San Francisco, A View Down California Street from Nob Hill," but looking in a different direction. I've taken artistic license to move the wonderful Bay Bridge slightly south to provide a full view - after all, what would the "City by the Bay" be without a bridge in the distance. In the middleground we see the Sir Francis Drake Hotel with its famous Starlite Roof, adorned by its landmark spinning star atop the stately main tower.
