George’s Postcard Note: We decided to take the ferry from Oakland to SF. The ferry port was small and positioned next to the huge Port of Oakland and its container shipping. The cranes and their bird-like shapes against the blue-blue sky was a postcard moment for me while waiting to embark. There was enough time, sitting in the bright sun, for me to open the full palette, spread out on the bench and complete the painting. It helped to have the historic yacht, in the foreground, to remind us of differences in scale and time.
