This piece is a part of my 'Colorful History' series of historical photographs and acrylic on canvas.

I took a historical photograph of the first Cliff House building in San Francisco as a starting point for this painting. The Cliff House was originally built around 1863 on the cliffs of Lans End, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and was most likely taken on an unusually sunny day in 1863. I then fill out the rest of the canvas with colorful acrylic paint to complete the scene, with the intention of creating a composition that balances the past and our modern time.

I was inspired to create this series as a native San Franciscan who has seen their city drastically change in recent times. My hope is to create work that could bring the past back into our present lives.

This painting was created live in the streets of San Francisco as a part of my Pullup Gallery project, which is a mobile studio/gallery that brings artistic practice into the city streets.
