In February The Spinsters of San Francisco held a premiere Legacy Benefit. It was an elegant philanthropic affair hosted at the historic Fairmont Swig Suite penthouse to raise money for Keen, an after school sports program for disabled kids. Asked to donate paintings for their auction, I chose to paint views from the penthouse. They are acrylic paintings as they needed to be dry for the event. Because I had to work from photographs, I was unaware that the patio’s fountain had been replaced recently. At the event, the patio was dark and mostly empty except for the view outward towards downtown San Francisco.
