Green Tortoise

Mixed Media, August 2019
Original. 45 x 60″

Before moving to San Francisco, I stayed at the Green Tortoise hostel and became enamored with the colors of the city and the strange atmosphere all around. The name of this hostel came from a hippie bus-line that commonly traveled between New York and San Francisco starting in the early 1970’s. In 1994, their unique model of social communal travel would be implemented into hostels in Seattle and San Francisco.
In this painting, I wanted to capture my first impressions of the light and atmosphere of the city of San Francisco from the grand cafeteria of the Green Tortoise. I had arrived late the night before only seeing the lights and many hills of the city from distance. This perspective painted a vivid image in my mind of what I was going to see of the city I would later call home.
