From San Francisco to New York

My first submissions to Paint Party Friday. The top one shows a small section of a church, and the bottom one was drawn on a sunny day by the water. Both were completed in San Francisco.

For Weekend Reflections, let’s go to New York. I caught with some friends over dinner, and they took me Queens so that we could look at the Manhattan skyline from there. The above structure is in Queens, and my friends said most people point their cameras in the opposite direction…. see next 2 photos.

And a bridge for Sunday Bridges. The photos are not exactly sharp since I only had my point and shoot with me then., but I like them anyway. Hope you are not getting crossed-eyed!

The view was breathtaking, but my photos are not very good. I hope you enjoy them anyway. 

Have a nice weekend.

Every time I see your sketches I think "She can draw anything!".
It's so fun to take nocturnal shots, don't you think?
Have a happy weekend Evelyn! ;-)

Nice stylistic church, beautiful blue and white!

And I can imagine it was breathtaking to see all those lights and refelections in real. Wow! Your photos give a good impression!

Have a fun weekend too, Evelyn!

Two sketches are very good indeed! I wonder if there's anything you can't sketch?

Illuminations and reflections took my breath away - without the flood of colors but with golden or silvery nightscape.

Fantastic, Evelyn!
The church is Sts. Peter and Paul in San Francisco's North Beach where Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe were married.

As always, «Louis» appreciates your participation in Sunday Bridges.

Trust you to see beauty where others don't, Evelyn! I like the vivid blue with pure white you used on the top sketch. Happy travels!

I think the bridge and its reflections is lovely! And my eyes don't get crossed, ha ha.. ;)

I would like to go to NY! :)

I love your paintings, especially the first one!! =)

Some yummy breakfast you had (previous post)!

You are a real adventurer! And a real artist (but that I think I've said several times..)

The photographs are fantastic. The paintings are cute. You really do show up all over the place. I'm very curious about the job that takes you so far away from home.
