Hearts in San Francisco

Here/Not Here

This giant fiberglass heart was painted by Lynne Rutter as part of the Hearts in San Francisco project. The two faces represent the moment just before and after death, and reflects on the loss of a close friend to AIDS.
This piece has been sold via auction to an anonymous collector. The money raised from this project benefits San Francisco General Hospital.
These pictures were taken at Crissy Field in July, 2004.
The heart also enjoyed some time in Civic Center Plaza during the summer.

"Faux finishes are truly appealing" by Kristine M. Carber

My work in this historic Diablo, CA home is featured in East Bay Home and Design magazine. In this entry the I painted the checkerboard floor by adjusting the size and shape of each diamond, just a bit, to compensate for an extremely crooked hallway. The house's original faux bois finishes were also cleaned and restored and in some places re-created to match the original.
