Painter Paints Painted Ladies
|He paints what he sees...|
But you don't often see a dude with an easel. Especially at the crack of dawn. You did today, however.
This artist, surrounded by his rather striking work, would only give his name as "Alan." His enchanting recreation of the Painted Ladies is obviously not photorealism; the buildings shimmy as if caught in the midst of a dance (or, less whimsically, The Big One).
It seems the only way you'll get to peruse Alan's work is to catch him in the act. Since, as he said, it takes nine hours to complete a painting like the one he's working on, perhaps you'll find him at Alamo Square Park later today. He's the heavily tattooed fellow with the Cockney accent who doesn't like to be bothered. Cheers!
