The Golden Gate Bridge Painting

I am pleased with this painting "The Golden Gate Bridge", is a  4,200 foot long main suspension span was a world record that stood for 27 years. 

It is still the second longest in the United States after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge which links Staten Island to Brooklyn in New York.

The Golden Gate Bridge in Progress

Riomaggiore Village Painting

Pardon my absence in blogging, with the kids back to school I can now do catch up with my paintings and blogging.

This painting below was completed a while ago of Riomaggiore, the progress of which I present to you now.


Riomaggiore is the most southern village of the Cinque Terre. It was first mentioned in the 13th century. The founders of the village moved from the hills to the sea, and built 3-4-storey houses on the rocky, steep territory. The houses have two entrances, one at the front, and one at the back, usually higher up. The buildings were constructed this way not only because of the steep hills, but also for safety reasons, so that the inhabitants could escape in case of Saracen attacks.

The Riomaggiore Painting

The Riomaggiore painting is taking longer than I had hoped, I started the painting year 2016, then parked it in the "to do later closet", and recently I decided to work on it again. 

Riomaggiore painting in progress

I normally paint on one painting at a time, but when I need change of scenery, I simultaneously started on a new painting of the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge, easily identified by its orange color.
