Welcome to my blog!
It was a large residence built in 1869 by James McCoy, a well-to-do Irish immigrant who served as San Diego’s sheriff and state senator. Prior to 1851 the property belonged to Maria Eugenia Silvas, descendant of a Spanish Colonial soldier who came to Alta California in the 1770s. And you nailed it with this beautiful painting. Well done.
Fantastic! I visited Old Town San Diego this past summer...what a great place! Nicely done!Debbie
lovely work :)
Thanks for the info Suzy, I wasn't really sure about the place. Interesting info. Someone also told me it wasn't the original house but a reconstruction. Thanks Debbie, glad you enjoy the painting. Like this place, San Diego is full of gems to paint.
Thanks Vivien, you have an interesting blog as well. Nice!
Hi Danny,I found you through Alex's blog. Wonderful paintings by the way! Your compositions are strong, your drawing is solid and I enjoy the subject matter. You seem to have a similar affinity for urbany type scenes.If you're ever in the Los Angeles area, maybe we could go paintng. By the way, may I add you as a link to my blog?
Thanks Jennifer! Been a fan of your paintings for some time, great work overall. Your choice of subjects are simply fantastic. Sure, add me to your blog and it would be a privelege to add you to my blog.Thanks again!
This is a very good one and I like the composition and variety of colors which add such a nice mood to it.
Anybody who can paint back alleys and dumpsters and make me slobber over them probably also walks on water. Keep it up, you're an inspiration!Codster
Ha ha, that's funny Codster! I have never recieved a compliment quite like that, but thanks. I'm glad you're inspired. I feel the same way looking at those who inspire me.
