A couple, dressed for an evening out, saunters down a steep San Francisco hill. The early evening light blends with the incoming fog from the Golden Gate to create a seemingly timeless, poetic scene. Living in San Francisco for many years, I often found inspiration in such fleeting moments. Echoing my own travels, I began this painting in my San Francisco studio and finished it in Santa Monica. When I lived in San Francisco and often on return visits, Lawrence Ferlinghetti's bookstore City Lights beckoned. A few years ago with my great friend Phil Cousineau on a book tour for our joint effort “The Painted Word”, we were able to stand together in a packed upper room at City Lights and express our deep admiration for Ferlinghetti's inspiration. My painting “Telegraph Hill” seems to carry the feelings we all felt in the bookstore that night. Ferlinghetti's poem “The Changing Light” (see below) embodies that wistful moment. The Changing Light by Lawrence Ferlinghetti The changing light at San Francisco is none of your East Coast light none of your pearly light of Paris The light of San Francisco is a sea light an island light And the light of fog blanketing the hills drifting in at night through the Golden Gate to lie on the city at dawn And then the halcyon late mornings after the fog burns off and the sun paints white houses with the sea light of Greece with sharp clean shadows making the town look like it had just been painted But the wind comes up at four o'clock sweeping the hills And then the veil of light of early evening And then another scrim when the new night fog floats in And in that vale of light the city drifts anchorless upon the ocean "The Changing Light" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, from How to Paint Sunlight. © New Directions Publishing Corporation, 2001. Note: "Telegraph Hill" is painted on a 24" x 18" oil primed linen canvas acquired on a painting excursion in Japan. Typical of many Japanese and European canvases, the stretcher bar depth is 1/2" .
