I'm a full-time oil painter living in the North Bay. Can be painting vineyards in Napa within 30 minutes of leaving my home or paint within walking distance of where I live on Mare Island. Impressionist Plein Air painting is my passion.
I recently visited the Legion of Honor Fine Arts Museum in San Francisco. Pissarro's People is extraordinary exhibit of his paintings, many of which I had not seen in books or other museums before. Although Pissarro is known for his landscape pieces, this show contained many of his figurative works. Several of his black and white sketches were quite interesting and worth seeing as well. The exhibit runs through January 22, 2012. If you are in the San Francisco area, do take time to visit the Legion of Honor before the exhibit ends. If any of you saw the exhibit, I would enjoy hearing from you so we can compare our experiences and thoughts.
