This painting is inspired by St. Peter and Paul Church in the North Beach area of San Francisco. I took a few shots of the church from the hill when I was driving. Later, I did a series of paintings based on those quick shots. I removed many details and forgot about the photos and just started painting to capture the feel of the Church without all the details. This is how I paint most of the time. Acrylic, acrylic markers, and oil sticks were used on gallery-wrapped canvas to create this image. The sides are painted black. "Cathedral Beneath a Hill 03" is varnished, wired and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Yuvak

Hailing from Nepal, Yuvak Taladhar now works in his studio just north of San Francisco. Not limited to a specific style or aesthetic, his process starts by taking a rough idea and then letting his sub-conscious run wild. He begins to work with more control once his ideas and brushstrokes begin to gel. A product of many cultures and experiences, Yuvak has achieved two MFAs and is also a skilled photographer and woodworker. Ever the romantic, his dream dinner date is his beautiful and loving wife.
