finished work as of today

still drying.

more shipyards...

"the Streets of San Francisco" episode: "The Unicorn" is actually shot on location where I always go to paint... you should check it out, it is very interesting to see what the docks looked like in the 70s. Familiar silhouettes of the cranes and dry docks but also lots of warehouses that are completely gone...

anyway- making good progress on these.

They put this very nice introduction of me and my work on their website:

"In addition to some of our regular favorite artists who have produced

Little Jewels for this show, we are delighted to introduce Katja Leibenath,

a wonderful German artist whose work caught our eye when we first saw it.

This show features Katja's plein air studies of the Boat Basin in the San Francisco bay,

and offers glimpses of this artist's ability to capture the joys of the details in the mundane and every day life.
