I won an Art Scholarship in Painting and Fine Arts in 1971 in a nationwide "Draw-me Art Contest" sponsored by Art Instruction Schools, Minneapolis, Minnesota. I studied Art in junior high and high school and a minor in College. I have won numerous awards in local and International Art Competitions. I'm free-lance artist painting portraits since 1971. I’m dedicated to fostering and enhancing an understanding of practice, techniques, aesthetics and applications of traditional fine art portraiture and figurative arts. My other endeavor is painting still life’s, landscapes, seascapes, nudes, animals & pet portraits. My main medium is Oil, but I can also work in Acrylic, pen & ink, pastel, charcoal & colored pencil. I also enjoyed linoleum block carving. I lived in San Francisco for 41 years. My future artistic goal is to show the beauty of San Francisco thru my paintings. I will put on canvas scenery that is San Francisco, it' rolling hills and cable cars, the Golden Gate Bridge and Fort Point, the Cliff House and its Seal Rocks, the Marina and the Palace of Fine Arts, Fisherman's Wharf and its Pier 39, Fort Mason, Golden Gate Park and its Japanese Tea Garden, the Crookedest Street in San Francisco, Coit Tower, Market Street, the Presidio, the Victorian Buildings, Alcatraz island, Angel Island, the Bay Bridge, the Embarcadero, the Sea Cliff district, The Palace of the Legion of Honor, De Young Museum, the Twin Peaks, Mt Davidson, Lake Merced, Lands End, Chinatown, Japan Town, Alamo Square, Union Square and many more. Watch this website in the future and I will share you San Francisco. I was a member of ASOPA (American Society of Portrait Artists) base in New York, Portrait art Society base in San Francisco & Museum Society & Street Artists of San Francisco. My other interest in life is Dancing. I'm a professional dance instructor teaching Ballroom, Latin and Swing in San Francisco and the bay area.

Beautiful Picture!!!!



Interesting sign. The letters are so elided you could read it many different ways.

Apparently Buena Vista Park has walkways with gutters that are lined with the tombstones of the cemeteries that used to be at Lone Mountain, SF. Did you notice anything like that there? I can't quite tell in this photo because leaves are covering them up.

I guess this was the Warriors land site for their new $1.7 Billion Basketball & Music Concerts ONLY stadium, that's going to be w/out a doubt the #1 nicest NBA Arena in the world it will be so state of the art, plus great viewing of the floor from anywhere you sit,says Joe Lacob, 1/2 $Billionaire Owner of Warriors team, great guy too! That made me pretty happy that theres not EVER going to be any hockey here, Joe says: "Mainly because of the cost! If we built the new stadium setup for ice hockey as well, it would add $100,000,000 to the budget! No Thanks! Now if Michael J. Fox lived in SF maybe we'd consider it!! But such a great location, easy access for East Bay residents w/the bridge 1/2 mile from the stadium for big Eric Clapton,Journey,Huey Lewis and the News,the FAB, "Train", Santana,Phenom. Twr of Power and best ever horn section!,Metallica (Gotta throw a metal band in there esp. since they've sold like A Zillion albums!)So yeah, Lacob really had a huge smile w/ big dollar signs in em when he was talkin about using it bigtime for nothin but the "Big" name artist's for concerts! SF has been desperate for a nice venue like this for many years so I'm kinda jacked about it + ATT Giants Park is what, 500 yds down the street! Too bad The DeBartalo's didn't decide to build the new 49er stadium somewhere within walking distance of the other 2 places huh! Talk about a potentially "World famous "S.F. Sports Row and we're changing our Warriors name back to SF instead of the worn out and usually terrible GS teams!(Accept for the T.M.C. days! Now they were def. hot! To me Mully is in the Top 5 of greatest all time "pure shooters" the NBA has ever seen! Sorta reminded me a bit of Bird or Dominick Dubya as far as shooting goes! Now we got S.C. (Not USC!)and our owner J.Lac.,just last night was interviewed and called Curry "Oh we've only got the best shooter in the World is all!.."Quote unquote!" True and I agree! Esp. when he gets hot, he's already in the Bird, Mully, Dom Dubya league already! Phew! Just wait until he gets into his prime w/ about 3-4 yrs of more exper!!! Scary thought but I think he could break Kobe's 82 pt record! Maybe even Wilt's 100 pts.if it was a planned operation and he was fed the ball all night purposely at a time when his shooting had been extrem. hot so! He'd be a tired boy the way he drives the hoop so often! johnlovintunes@gmail

Fantastic street photos Rosencruz Sumera, please consider joining my group your photos would be great fit for Railroading North America. An invite has been sent to join, they're currently over 1260 members now in the group, of which photos are focused on our continent's railroading heritage and future…

A very nice photo, but the building in the distance is not Laguna Honda Hospital. Laguna Honda Hospital is on the other side of Twin Peaks/Mount Sutro and you would need x-ray vision to see it from Dolores Park. The building in the picture is a condominum building beside Buena Vista Park, which you can see beyond it. Sorry, I don't know the name of the condominium building. I believe it used to be a hospital, and it does indeed look a lot like the old Laguna Honda Hospital.

Hi Rosencruz, I'm writing The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues. I'm interested in using this photo. I'd need it at least 1mb or larger. Please email me at

Thank you Harry Angus
