Pier 19 with Bicycle

Pier 19 with Bicycle. 36" x 84". Collage, Acrylic and Oil on Wood Panel.
Here’s another Pier painting I’ve just finished: Inspired by Pier 19 on the Embarcadero in San Francisco the painting depicts the architectural rhythm of the building and construction of the piers. But is also a collage of street posters and old wall signage that I have found elsewhere in the city. The bicycle is mine – I often ride the length of the Embarcadero, armed with camera and sketchbook, looking for material for my paintings.

Pier 19 w. Bicycle - development in studio.
