Some of us met the Supergirl of San Francisco who was just starting her patrol near us as we worked. She expressed interest in our work and welcomed us to her city. This YouTube clip is a good introduction to Supergirl:

Artists at work: Cold? (Yes) + Spectacularly Beautiful Day? (Yes)
= Happy, Dedicated, and Cold Artists! (Yes)
|On (and 'over' in the case of Kaaren) the curb: (left to right: Salinda, Candy and Kaaren)|
|Left to right: Dick, Tanvi, Salinda (behind Candy), Candy and Kaaren|
|Dick was unhappy with his bridge 'towers' so he imagined a fog bank obscuring the span itself ---which is probably how the bridge looks 180 days a year.|
|Laurie's first Thursday Paintsite painting but obviously not her first plein air painting! (Check out Laurie's website in the Member's Websites sidebar)|
|Tanvi's painting of the south end of the Bridge, Angel Island, the surf, cypress trees, ...|
|Kaaren experimented with some different paper which didn't behave as she hoped. Still, not too bad all things considered --- many of us should be so lucky with any paper!|
|Kaaren's second painting - this of a Lands End cypress|
|Salinda's turbulent surf captured the mood (and one of the colors) of the ocean. Angel Island is in the background.|
|Candy's first painting of the Bridge - note the North Tower shadows on the Marin Headlands --- we've painted the shadows before and they're always fascinating both to paint and watch as they move across the hillside.|
|Candy's second painting of the Bridge. But where have the shadows gone? They're shy and can barely be seen hiding under the roadway.|
|Liz (foreground) and Helen|
|Helen's painting of the south end of the Bridge ...|
|Brad's painting of the Bridge with Candy and Kaaren in the foreground.|
|Mary R. was the only "Hiker". (That's Supergirl in the background getting ready to go on patrol.)|
|Mary took this photo of the Golden Gate Bridge from the hiking trail.|
|Tanvi painting the Marin Headlands|
|Tanvi's sketch of Pt. Bonita and the Marin Headlands. A tug heads out to guide a commercial vessel into port. (It made me queasy just watching it pound and bounce thru the swells rolling in.)|
|Candy's third painting --- this one of the Marin Headlands looking north-west towards Pt. Reyes. By this time the clouds started moving in --- it would rain later that afternoon.|
|Helen's painting of artists on the curb|
|Helen's painting of Liz|
Lunch then Show & Share: We hurried thru lunch then took our time talking about our artwork. We definitely have our priorities straight.
|Bundled up but still cold, we agreed on an early lunch. (Note to Jane & Marilyn: next time bring wood for a campfire.)|
