George’s Postcard Note: Having gotten into the painting mood on the streets of Noe Valley, where we were living, I decided to wander a little farther away into an adjacent neighborhood. There I stumbled across a magnificent bougainvillea with a house behind it. To me in this scene it was nature first, architecture second. So I sat on the curb across the street and began painting. The people who lived in the house I was sitting in front of were leaving. They stopped by to chat. They agreed that this tree is the major event on their street and told me how all the neighbors love it and watch over it, like good neighbors do. That’s San Francisco for you!
