Art Notes

Few cities offered Thomas Kinkade the romantic inspiration that San Francisco brought to his canvas. A favorite for Thom even as a young boy, the City by the Bay was “the city for me” – with breathtaking vistas and stunning spectacles waiting to be captured by his artist’s brush. Lombard Street, proclaimed “the crookedest street in the world,” was a frequent stop for Thom’s motorcycle and artist easel. Plunging down a steep and winding road through a profusion of flowers and romantic old homes, Lombard Street offers sweeping views of the City and Bay while gently reminding us of the twists and turns along the road of life. Looking back up Lombard Street, it’s easy to see that the way we came, though winding and uncertain, still brought us to the place we were meant to be.
