Everyone who visits San Francisco knows the thrill of the ride. The hills are steep. I exaggerated the hill in this painting and filled in the bay with an image that may be Alcatraz, The rounded fronts of the Victorian houses are like the ones on Hyde St. So this is a composite of many San Francisco symbols and overall is a blue painting. I tried to focus on the cable car by giving it the warm and complimentary color. You know, the focal point is the darkest/lightest, hotest/coolest or complimentary colors. The track lines draw the eye to it.
