Hi Everyone!

This is a digital translation from this amazing image:

Essence of San Francisco
by pat gamwell

Thank you Pat!

Here is the process:
Step one: images starting out with:


a bit of a dry run with what I will do…


more investigation for the feeling I want:

Getting close:


Go back to looking at other ways to convey this interperation:

and then this one gives me an idea how I want the tones to be:

then I went back and used some of the tones and I painted and used doge and burn and textures to the final work:


san francisco, stop light, city, urban, abstract, bridge, golden gate, white, blue, citylife, california, trees

I am artist always becoming…
Endless ideas pull me forward towards endless creation.

    Great imagination; difficult to get everything about San Francisco into one work of art, yet here in essence I believe you have accomplished just that impossible task, by way of spirit to journey and see. A true visual feast and door opener. oxo
