Pinot and Poppies

This is my entry for the Three Muses challenge this week where the theme is "Where You Live".  I wanted to step outside my comfort zone a bit and create an iconic collage that represents  what my native area means to me and in a painterly way.  The San Francisco Bay Area is a multi- cultural fascinating place to live.  I have been fortunate to have lived here my whole life. It encompasses not only the city of San Francisco but Marin County  and  the Wine country going North, Yosemite Valley going east  and the incredible Pacific Ocean going West.  I have included from Google images and personal photos a collage of many of the main highlights for me.  Mt. Tamalpais, rich in legend and tons of hiking trails that (I live for), of course the Golden Gate Bridge that my Grandmother watched being built when she lived in the Marina District, the giant Redwoods of Muir Woods, the sailing community of  Sausalito and Tiburon/ Bevedere and the wonderful grapevines that paint the Sonoma/Napa/ and Mendocino counties glorious hues in the fall. A wonderland of backroads and discovery!

  13. I agree with Ann! This is such a beautiful, creative artpiece!!
    (I have crossed the Golden Gate bridge only once, on a coastal road trip from Seattle to Los Angeles. I was soooo looking forward to the bridge and the views but it was one of those sea misty days and all I could see was the road ahead for a short distance and not even the stays of the bridge!!)
