Hopper Light

I’ve always loved the way that light was seen, and depicted, by the American painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967). Sometimes, as I’m out and about in an urban setting, I find instances where life imitates his art. In particular, the ubiquitous stucco walls in my area of San Francisco are a perfect surface for the flat planes of light I see in his work, and the diffusing ocean mist also doesn’t hurt. Here are three images, unabashed homages, that I’ve made over the years: “Hopper Morning,” “Apartments at Sunset,” and “Night Entrance.”

 

Painter tells stories behind Golden Gate Park statues – SFGate

Given that much of my art work takes its inspiration and subject matter from Golden Gate Park, I was eager to read and now share this post by Heath Massey in her “Views from the Thicket” blog. Thanks for this find, Heath!
