CAFFE TRIESTE – acrylic on canvas, 18″ x 24″
Contemporary realism, cityscape

One of the North Beach series, this is a landmark in San Francisco. I’m sorry to say I’ve never been there – just by there many times. Deep in the heart of the Italian district, the electric poles have red, green and white bands. The colors are pretty accurate (I admit I often skew colors to suit my vision) and typical of the area.
