“I Left My Heart in San Francisco …”, so says the classic ballad; yet what is it about the fabled city by the bay that so strongly tugs at the heart strings?
I have yet to document a setting that is as quintessentially “San Francisco” as my newest work. We can almost hear the clanging of bells as a cable car makes its way ponderously up the street while colorful vehicles dodge to and fro on the congested pavement. At the far left the towers of a Cathedral lend a timeless presence while in the distance the Coit Tower and the picturesque monoliths of the bridge stand guard over the glistening bay.
As I worked, I wanted so much to enter The Heart of San Francisco that I even posed myself astride my vintage Harley Davidson motorcycle making my way up the steep incline of the boulevard!
