I feel so fortunate to be able to see her work in person. I am always struck by her ability to create something beautiful on a canvas, and create something just as beautiful on a huge wall. When you get up close to her paintings, there's these little details that add so much- a slight blush to the cheeks or the way she accents the flow of hair, or the gold paint she used here on the headpiece. I particularly love this mural, of course, because it's in my city, and I consider San Francisco to be a more beautiful place because of this amazing gift she has given to all of us.
Here's some of my favorite photos of the new mural, as I was there I couldn't help feeling so happy and thankful and yeah- a little emotional- that my favorite artist made my favorite place a little better. Thank you, Miss Van! <3
