Landscape - SFO

Oil On Canvas
900 x 900mm

We lived in San Francisco for a year and it was a monumental year for us for lots of reasons. I have mixed memories of San Francisco Airport - arriving for a new adventure and the trepidation of having to find my way out of the place through a snake pit of road lanes and into the city, driving out to pick up much missed friends and family and being amazed that after a while I was not so overwhelmed by the place. San Francisco was becoming home.

SFO from above looks very surprising. It is a tartan pattern but the spaces between the runways are desolate, scorched earth. There is no effort made to make it look pretty.
