California Holiday by RD Riccoboni™ here is the Britt Scripps Mansion all decorated for the holiday seacon in San Diego California. The original painitng is an acrylic and available in prints and on cards here on Redbubble through gallery, Beacon Artworks.

Beacon Artworks Gallery, shows the San Diego paintings by California artist RD Riccoboni. These art pieces tell the story of San Diego from Old Town to today, created in bold color. The birthplace of California – Old Town, San Diego is featured at the gallery, as well as the first mission and colonial building in the western United States, Mission San Diego De Alcala. Visit the Spanish Colonial fantasy of Balboa Park, the historic Gaslamp district, Little Italy, Point Loma, La Jolla and Coronado Island. The gallery takes you on a colorful tour through art of America’s finest city, San Diego, with paintings by one of America’s favorite artists, RD Riccoboni.

Riccoboni appreciates both new and old San Diego, along with the California history that surrounds these settings. The artist went out in search of old homes to paint, and soon realized there was so much more beauty in the overall experience of his city and county and recreate in art a mix of everyday activity in neighborhood street scenes, all in bold color that tells the story of this special place.

Beacon Artworks Gallery is located at 2754 Calhoun Street in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.

    How Beautiful RD. I can only imagine what the real thing looks like. And that’s not taking anything away from the excellent work you’ve done. Great job my friend.

  • Thanks’ Jim! If you folks should ever find yourselves out here for the holidays, you have to see this place! The Britt-Scripps house is now an inn, it’s on the corner of Fouth and Maple in Banker’s Hill, right by Balboa Park. It’s an amazing sight!

    Excellent painting, Rd. A fine emphasis upon the grand building, by highlights and implied detailed.
