I'll be back next week with more paintings. Meanwhile, here's something you might enjoy: my muralist friend Art Mortimer sent me this link to an astonishing film shot from a streetcar in San Francisco in 1906, purportedly just days before the great earthquake and fire. Here's what Art writes about the film:
"I have been doing historical murals and looking at old photos for many years and it is amazing to see it come to life-- to get a sense of what the daily life was like: Peoples' movement, traffic, clothing-- the rhythms of life. You don't get that just looking at the still photos. Amazing."
