This is one of my later paintings, and like practically
all work I did at San Jose State, was created without a photograph.
In fact, this one didnt even have the benefit of a sketch
beforehand, just two different glances across the bay on different
days... The first is the view from Paseo Padre across southern
Fremont in the morning, which looks roughly like the mountains
and the bay in the picture, and a view of the clouds some two
weeks later. Of course, in the real scene, there are houses on
the mountains and factories by the bay... The tree in a way symbolizes
the loneliness of modern existence, how we all keep to ourselves,
afraid to let others in.
