Monterey Ave, Capitola

Monterey Ave, Capitola
6x6 original oil painting, $150
Studio Gallery
This small painting shows a street in Capitola called Monterey Ave.  The yellow building on the left is El Toro Mexican Restaurant and in the middle of the painting is a grassy area called "Lawn Way".  I liked the contrast of the buildings against the lawn and landscape in the distance.  I also liked the weird angles of the cross walk that draw you into the composition.
This painting is in a show is called "Tiny" and runs through December 24 at Studio Gallery, 1815 Polk Street, San Francisco.  Studio Gallery is celebrating their 10th Anniversary this month.
