New Pier Painting
Pier 28 (North side) SF. 52" x 48" Mixed media on wood panels.
I've just finished this new painting of a pier on the Embarcadero in San Francisco which is still used by a small fishing company. The painting measures 52" x 48" and is constructed in two panels which relate to the architectural module of the building. The water effect is created by applying the bands of oil paint with the edge of a piece of wood. This creates thick ridges which look great but which take a while to dry. In the meantime it is hanging in my studio.
