ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY ~ FLEETING



I have always been fascinated with the lovely homes in San Francisco. The tall apartments with their many windows present so many possibilities for invention.

lovely piece, paper airplanes are perfect for 'fleeting.'
San Francisco really does have beautiful houses I always love the long steps up to the front doors.

Thanks for all the supportive comments. These houses in SF are normally found in the Hispanic district. I have always found the architecture of this style row house to be dramatic and appealing.

The other favorite homes I have seen are in Pacific Heights. That is where the steps seem to go on forever. Sort of reminds me of a "stairway to heaven."

Wonderful drawing and concept! SF does have some pretty magnificent houses.
I love the fleeting paper planes :)

Side note: I was just reading online this morning that the unemployment rate is pretty low in Portsmouth, NH. It was one of the top ten places with lowest unemployment. I know you're in P'borough, but still :)
