The sun rarely reaches my neighborhood, The Richmond District of San Francisco. To inject some light into the area, I set a row of fog-bathed buildings against an amber wood backdrop with gold-leaf foil. The result is a surreal scene, a puzzling union of common buildings and striking background. In search for subject material, I scavenge thrift shops for lost vintage photos to paint, and set up my easel on cold, foggy days to capture ordinary scenes. Each piece hints at some narrative. It’s up to the viewer to complete the story.
