Fireworks in SF!!

Super Bowl Fireworks in San Francisco from our bedroom balcony!

"Speakeasy" Painting, Session Three‏

I met with Dean to work on my Speakeasy painting this afternoon.

We lightened the original photograph that I took to get more details in the darker areas. It really helped, especially in the lower parts of the photo. You can see a lot more detail of the chairs, bar, floor, and shadows.

The photo of my painting is a little darker than what it really is like, so urns a bit funny that you can't really see all the details of everything I just mentioned, but I promise, it's in there!

End of Session Three

My Beautiful City

Oh, San Francisco....
How did you manage to get even more beautiful while I was away?

Retro Phone

I love that my Mom still uses our Snoopy Phone from the 1970s! :)


This is what my Fitbit friend list looked like last night. My friends are such overachievers! :)

Plains, trams and buses!

Today's adventures in transportation:
Bus from Bellevue to SeaTac: 51 min, $2.50.
Fly from SEA --> SFO 2 hours
Tram to BART, walk (uphill!) to Bus, take 35 bus home: 50 min, $8.50 BART plus $2.25 Bus.
Door to Door in 5-1/2 hours (which included arriving at the airport an hour before boarding) . Not bad!

Catch a Tiger by the Tail

I snuck a peek of Walter holding Noe's tail this morning. She didn't seem to mind.

Art at SFO

My absolute favorite spot in all of SFO is in front of this incredible oil painting by Wayne Thiebaud. It is in the new United Terminal, across from gate 61.

Whenever I fly in/out of SFO, it always makes me happy to see this beauty.

Last night fun!
