Oil, 24 x 36 inch, The Shiny Wall, © St Germain

This is not the end of the visions yet!
Several of them I saw with a veil of mist over them
so it was more challenging to determine
the details. I sensed that this copper looking wall
with an eye engraved could be one of the world wonders
people all over the world would flock to.

I chose to add two people to symbolize the
intimacy and seductiveness this sculpture carried.
I imagined this to be a symbol of pride,
an all-seeing dark eye, and artistry.
Hopefully some will be able to take a step back,
instead of like these two, being totally
swallowed up by the media hype.

Also the smoke on top was not in the vision. I included
it to strengthen the feeling of mysteriousness
and religious seductiveness this scene carried. Do you
know that feeling seeing something simple, but sensing a
host of other unseen things that cannot
see daylight, are connected to it?

For the wall, I used Golden Acrylic Iridescent and Bright
Gold Renaissance Gold from Artists Oil color and
Winton Titanium White mixed with Cadmium Yellow light
(meaning, I Mixed Oil paint with Acrylic paint to achieve
this bright effect. Not usually done!)

Like this door, but a little too much text – don’t you think?
All the doors in this post are found in Old Town Sacramento.
They have kept the outside of the buildings in the style
of the Goldrush ca. 1850 that made California so well known.

Judging from the mask, I took this image during the pandemic of 2020
As a matter of fact it was July 4th, and we did not want to stay home, moping!!
We found some restaurants and shops (non-essential!) open:)
California may be known as a democratic state, but that is “the news” slant.
There are plenty who have been defying the tyranny of the lockdowns!
But what about all those people who died….?
Just an example, in Huntington Beach 177 people died. No, not 177.000!

Another non-essential open door.The streets were not empty.
I just waited like I always do until all the pedestrians were out of the way.
