Rooftop View of 6th StreetSize: 19" x 24"
Medium: Oil on panel
Private Collection, San Francisco, CA.
Rooftop View (original painting, oil on panel, 19” x 24”) was inspired by a photograph taken by San Francisco photographer, Mark Ellinger, and with whom I had the great honor to have exhibited in 2008 during our two person show, "Heart of the City". We share tribute to the beauty and splendor of decaying and abandoned architecture and iconic city landmarks that distinguish the Tenderloin, mid-Market Street and Sixth Street/SoMa. Ellinger gave me permission to paint this image in 2010, which he originally captured the rooftop view from atop a hotel on 6th Street. The scene showcases the distinct warehouses of the neighborhood and a mutual favorite site- the PG&E Thermal plants of 6th & Jessie, which I’ve incorporated in many of my paintings and with the sky in bright emerald green tones.
This painting was first exhibited at STUDIO Gallery, during "City Streets" Annual Group Show, in San Francisco, July 11th - August 5th, 2012, and was later exhibited during my solo show, ON THE EDGE OF DELICATE LINES, from July to September 7th, 2013 at Alphaville Gallery, in San Francisco. Rooftop View was last exhibited at the Old Mint, for "Mid-Market Landmarks" solo show and during SF History Expo at the Old Mint, January-March 2015. This painting is also featured in my 2012 book publication entitled, SOMA RISING. It will be great to have this painting on view at Hospitality House 2016 Art Auction at the Luggage Store Gallery in San Francisco this June, 2016.
