Golden Gate Bridge


Golden-gate_web   Golden Gate Bridge. Oil on canvas miniature 2.75″x5.25″ Painted in 1969 after returning from San Francisco.

A very small painting on small stretcher bars (also miniature).  Until I visited this city, I thought of the bridge as the most important aspect to be remembered, but after touring the historic “Painted Ladies” part of town, I fell in love with Victorian homes.  Later in life I was so inspired by them that I designed and built several dolls houses in that style. That will be a later post.

There were many miniature painters 4 decades ago, and some really good ones now.  I went through that phase and still enjoy very small works with big ideas.
