A beautiful little book of watercolor images painted in and around San Francisco from 1980 onward. The author formed a plain air painting group which meets once monthly. This is the result of that, though it features only the images painted by him. What cool is that there are many things that he paints which are no longer part of today's San Francisco. This book inspired me; I would like to form a similar group. Each of the artist/author's images is beautiful but taken as a whole there aren't many surprises. I'd love to have seen images which others in the group painted during this time, but for that I'll have to wait for another book. Lots of good food for thought for those who like art and San Francisco.
