Kensington San Diego Painting

Spring Forward at the Kensington Cafe- for sale

Painted over morning coffee on the patio at Starbucks in the San Diego neighborhood of Kensington. It’s a really nice area.

There were great views in all directions, including a stunning Sixties Functional gas station and a Modernist library with trees growing through the architecture. I didn’t paint the library though; I got too discombobulated from Spring Forward. I’ll have to go back.

While I am primarily an oil painter, I love the immediacy of completing a loose pen and ink sketch highlighted with watercolor.

At this point, I think I’m going to have to call this a series: Sunday at Starbucks.
