December's Theme: San Francisco
This piece was part of a series I did of the Inner Sunset neighborhood. (Another one ended up on a street banner - see below). Shot on Ninth Avenue late in the day, I called it Late Afternoon. It's in a 18x24" contemporary black frame.
Still in the Print Bin
I have four unframed prints there, old and new, all San Francisco scenes, matted and ready for standard 16x20" or 18x24" frames.
The Opening Reception for the San Francisco show is Thursday, December 8th from 5:30 - 8pm at 647 Irving Street @ 8th Avenue, San Francisco. Music, wine, finger food and many nourishing works on the walls. I can't make it this month, but it's a fun way to see lots of interesting conceptions of San Francisco - and maybe pick up a holiday gift or two (Lots of ceramics, sculpture and jewelry too of course).
New Works and other news
Exploring a gorgeous house on Thanksgiving [Shadow Play], following a woman up a staircase [Boots 02], a stroll along San Francisco's Valencia Street [Inner circle], and a walk in Sacramento [Always Coke] produced these four.
At left, see my banner design that got selected to hang on a lightpost on Irving Street for a year along with 31 other designs selected from a competition sponsored by the SFWA gallery. And on the right below, you can click the image to see the piece written about me last month when I was selected to be the subject of the gallery's November 'Artists Spotlight'.
Great Holiday gifts for music lovers
The two volumes of Bay Area Jazz and Bluesicians, with a total of 251 local musicians photographed while they were performing are available on amazon.com (fastest way to get them online) or at www.bayareajazzandbluesicians.com probably a bit cheaper and takes 7 - 10 days to receive them. You can preview some of the pages on either site. If you prefer hand to hand consumerism, they can be purchased at Glen Park's Bird & Beckett Books & Records and at Noise a really cool record store in San Francisco, the Piedmont Piano Co. in Oakland and The Jazz Conservatory bookstore in Berkeley.
And never out of date, Street Seens can still be had from blurb.com. It's full of street photography from my jaunts here and there in the world, and it's available in both paper and hard cover versions.
You can preview the whole book HERE. It's only available online - purchase details on the preview page.
