Artists of the 19th Century traveled the world to paint exotic places and inspiring people, but I feel that in San Francisco they are all around me. This is the Mission District's Day of the Dead, where candlelit altars of remembrance are set up around a park at night. A procession and various performances take place there too, including this belly dancer.

Getting to Know Hadley

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.
