The surface of the bar in this San Francisco Mission district restaurant fills the bottom of the composition, so the viewer feels they really are there. I found the combination of cool refrigerated and warm, perhaps candle light, so pleasing. Most of all, I loved that there were metal and glass stars set into the bar: simple and graphic, a glamorous but slightly cowboy touch that to me spells hospitality.
San Francisco, California
Hadley’s subject matter is inspired by her San Francisco surroundings, particularly the city at night. Her glowing depictions of light sources are reminiscent of a blurred photograph or a bleary-eyed nighttime stroll. Hadley developed her love for art from her mother, a watercolorist, and continued to pursue her artistic career at a collegiate level and beyond. She now works out of a small studio in San Francisco’s Mission District. Hadley goes into her studio seven days a week with her Boston terrier puppy.
