Pin It
Chinatown, Oil, 8" x 10"
This painting is for sale.

The California Art Club hosted a paint out in Chinatown a few weekends ago and I missed it. My middle son was pitching at his high school baseball game and I didn't want to miss his game. I really wanted to attend because a dear friend of ours, George Yu, was hosting the event. George is Executive Director of the Chinatown Business Improvement District and they were working in conjunction with the CAC to plan this wonderful event. I heard from some of my artist friends that the event was wonderful! Also, while I was suffering on jury duty, George was kind enough to pick me up at the courthouse and treat me to lunch in Chinatown!
In George's honor I have painted my own Chinatown painting. I hope you all like it. The colors were really fun to paint!

I love city scenes! And in this one, the way you've balanced the business of the signs/buildings with that expanse of blue sky is really great.
