"Special", Acrylic on Canvas, 6" x 6"
This vintage trolley car is on display at the National City Depot, just south of San Diego. The museum has done a great job restoring it and I thought it looked especially striking -- almost heroic -- on this clear, sunny day. I like that its last journey was to someplace "special."

Blue Victorians

"Blue Victorians, Alameda", acrylic on canvas, 6" x 6"
Here's a new one in my "Architectural Gems" series. These beautiful Victorian neighbors are on Benton Street in Alameda. Since I took my reference photo the paint job on the nearest house has changed radically -- now it's white with black trim and a mural of pop-art designs.  People in Alameda are so creative!

Street Crew

"Street Crew", acrylic on canvas, 6" x 6"

When I saw this street crew I was attracted by the spots of ultra-bright color against a backdrop of complex machinery.  I bet those vests can be seen from space!  I'm entering this one in the Randy Higbee Gallery's 6" Squared Exhibition, along with another one I'm just finishing of a pair of Victorians in Alameda.  Will post again if they're accepted.
