Last Days in The Bay

Hi all,

Check out my paintings from my last week in the SF Bay area!

Looking down from my secret spot in Sibley

I lived in the Bay from 2012 to 2019. Going to the Academy of Art, living in Richmond and Oakland, and working at the Berkeley REI. I had a good time, and still consider that area to be home.

Leaving was super abrupt, and I wasn’t ready to go. Its been a learning and growing experience in a lot of ways.

Looking out on the Bay from down by the horse track.

I’ll mostly miss the people in the area. People have a unique mentality in the Bay that a lot of other towns can’t match. And each town is a different attitude. Richmond and Oakland are very distinct from one another. Let alone Berkeley, which is its own unique pocket dimension.

On my last day I finally made it out to the Marin Headlands. It’s worth braving the cold.

That closes a long chapter in my life. I’ll miss all my friends and the hiking and the Korean restaurants on Telegraph.

Still, I’m looking forward to the future. Making another push to sell my art. I have a couple of commissions right now, and am looking for more. I think everything will work out for the best.

Farewell, Bay Area.
