I am back from a trip to San Francisco. What a vital city! The oval shaped striped building is the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) which has a great collection. A Paul Klee show opened on the day we left (darn) but there was still plenty of modern art to experience. It was wonderful to see flowers blooming everywhere from Fisherman's Wharf to the California Academy of Sciences. Especially loved the aquarium there and all those fanciful fish and of course the penguins were endearing! Also had an amazing take-your-breath-away day of looking at dramatic lanscape at Fort Funston, a state park with knockout views of the Pacific Ocean and dunes covered with ice plants in bloom. I did the sketch of a man sleeping? (with ipod) while traveling on a BART train to visit friends. I'll be posting more photos later.
