beautiful threatment of indeed a wonderful bridge, much larger than the little bridge in my village.

Absolutely fantastic! Took my breathe away. I love that it has a screen print quality to it. The color is outstanding and what would we do without this glorious landmark. I lived in the Bay Area for awhile and have ridden my bicycle across this bridge many times. Aye..love S.F.

I've posted my contribution to Sue's Joy of Play here. It's amateur- but it was a fun exercicio.

I left my heart there too, John. I used to live in Sonoma and crossed that bridge many times to go into the city.

I do love what you have done with it. It is like looking at it from the top. Did it take you long to paint it green? Many man hours probably and all under the cover of night, no doubt.

Oh, I did leave my heart in San Francisco, somewhere around Golden Gate Park by the Japanese Garden. Could you just drop me off there, please? I'll make my way down the streets myself from that point on.

Hi John,

This is great! What fun - I like that you are using bigger chunks in your work.

Dosn't seem to make a difference if you sample a NZ beach, family photo or famous bridge...you make them all unique with your equally unique style.
This one here reminds me a a film/negative strip, full of memories and warmth. I look forward to seeing what you do next!

Hi John, thank you for sending me that link about Pablo. It seems that I am in violation of the law, because his work is not yet in the public domain. Will you report me now? I wonder if they will let me get away with it because I am such a personable woman with outstanding character. I'll move on to Monet and Van Gogh and the other older guys.

Lovely work, dear.john.

My favorite part? The shadows (once clouds) that give a surprise impression and comfort of depth.

You have outdone yourself, John. I LOVE this one. The way it looks stamped or painted somehow. Beautiful and love the colors too.

What can I add? Very very nice! Are you sure you are not an artist? :)

Neda said...

Oh yeahh. I forgot: I LOVE SF!!!! I miss it too although I never lived there, just visited several times...

Bev said...

Ours is quite good too, only five minutes from here called 'The Humber Bridge'. Larger, though not red. These bridges are very impressive when you see this sort of view, and impressive on any level really.

Thank you everyone, for your kind comments. I do miss SFO (airpoort tag says that) and I do hope someday my Giants will win the World Series. I have waitied most of my English speaking life for this and still always "sports agony." I should stop caring.

I appreciate all your time and input. My best.
