Image: Santa Rosa Court House

"Santa Rosa Court House"

This art piece is a landscape/architectural work, departing from the traditional landscape mode, but not so much that it is not grounded in realism.  This is the old court house in Santa Rosa.  Built of stone, it survived the 1904 San Francisco earth quake, which extended north to the Santa Rosa area.  This work was done in colored pencil on grey tinted paper.
