You have to live in San Francisco to really appreciate a warm night. We have them so rarely, even in summer the heat goes on many a night. The other evening, at Kirby Cove the fog cleared, it was warm, the full moon was rising and my City looked dazzling. We all were commenting on how unreal it looked. It was one of those “fake” Hollywood renditions of San Francisco — but it was real. I also realized I never really do night paintings and I started putting the camera to work so I could add a nighttime cityscape to the 2011 Project.
