Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Streak of yellow by Lisa Elley. Palette Knife painting in oil. 6 x 6 inches, free easel. www.lisaelley.com
This little oil painting is part of my postcard series. A little memento straight from San Francisco! Postcards are disposable, why not replace them with an original palette knife painting?!
A Perfect little gift, or souvenir. It looks great anywhere in the house. I have recently relocated to the bay area and am stocking my shop with many little moments that I capture here in San Francisco!

T I T L E: Streak of Yellow

I N S P I R E D* B Y: San Francisco! Say no more!

SAN FRANCISCO--For almost anyone who's visited Baghdad by the Bay, a ride on one of the city's iconic cable cars is pretty much a must.
What most people don't know, however, is that, once upon a time, these wooden vehicles, which are pulled along their routes by thick, heavy, metal cables, could be found in cities all over the world.
From Paris to Melbourne to Bogota and elsewhere, the cable car was once seen as a fantastic alternative to having horses pull cars of people around. But when electric power made trolley cars efficient, most cities made the switch and abandoned their cable cars. Not San Francisco.
Here, while trolleys, buses, and subways are big parts of the daily commute, cable cars are still the face of the city's public transit system. Whether it's the clanging of a cable car's bell as it crosses Lombard Street, or the lines of people waiting alongside one of the turnarounds, there's little doubt that the system, which operates 40 cars dating as far back as the 1880s, is one of San Francisco's most famous features.
