San Francisco 1906 by CarolynYM San Francisco 1906 by CarolynYM
16" x 16" in oil

I watched a piece of history from this link, which I recommend viewing, [link]

I was so struck with nostalgia at watching it that I had to paint it. My father would be 2 years old when this was filmed. Incidently, most of the city was destroyed shortly after this was taken by an earthquake/fire.

Very powerful
Kind of expression of an artistic inspiration mixture between the French impressionist painting by the end of the XIX-th century and the American Ben Shahan
Your (art) sincerity is striking

You are so kind, Riki. Thank you for the wonderful comment and for the fav. I am ashamed to let you know that I have not heard of Ben Shahn before and after searching him thru google, I love his art and he had an interesting life. Plan to read more about him. Thank you for introducing this very wonderful artist:hug:

That was fascinating. I was riveted by all the bad driving and jaywalking. That was a dangerous time! And you've done a great job painting this.

I love that video. It's a time in memory and amazing that no one got injured. There certainly were no rules back then. Thank you, Tom, for your kind comment:heart:
