Sacramento River and a Teaser
This is a small 4"X12" acrylic on stretched canvas that I painted this last Friday. It features the setting sun on the west bank of the Sacramento River. The pyramid-looking building is unofficially called the Ziggurat. This is one of three major landmarks (on the west bank of the river) that you see at night coming into Sacramento (Sacramento is on the east bank). It looks as if it is totally lighted up from the inside out and from the base to tip top. A pretty amazing sight to see. The other all-glass and steel structure is the second major business building put up in West Sacramento. The second image here is a sneak peek (just a portion of the painting) of my entry into the second go around (or challenge) for my Self Portrait Global Love In blog. I'll post the entire image with the rest of the entries shortly after the Sept. 12 deadline. THE ONLY QUALIFICATION FOR THE SECOND CHALLENGE (like the first) IS THAT IT BE A SELF PORTRAIT WITH SOMETHING ON THE HEAD. ALL ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED AND POSTED. HAVE FUN!!
