Racing with the Fog
This the 75th birthday of our grand landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge. I painted the scene from Fort Baker which is below the bridge and allows a view of the lighthouse underneath and the fog rolling in off the Pacific. During the summer months the fog is very regular in timing. It comes over the hills from Stinson Beach and rolls down over the highway and over the bridge. It is thick and stays in a mass and then starts to have parts break off. There are places on the Bay that seldom get covered by the fog. When living in Tiburon, I could witness this daily summer event because we were the last to be covered.
