A detail of the Villa Montezuma, a Victorian mansion covered with gables, spires, dragon gargoyles, and inventive decorations like this twisting trim. It’s said to be haunted- and the ghost tour bus drives by every night promptly at 11. for sale
While I was painting this, two different neighbors offered their opinions about the ghosts. She said yes, there are ghosts in the mansion, he said no, never seen one in 10 years- you be the judge.
This was part of the “Great American Paint Out” with the Oil Painters of America. It’s always fun meeting other painters and today’s group paint was no exception.
In addition to the great old mansion, Sherman Heights where we met has beautiful city and bay views.
