SF Palace of Fine Arts by chateaugrief SF Palace of Fine Arts by chateaugrief
So many beautiful places in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Brought to you weekly by the webcomic Chateau Grief...because I've got to break from grayscaling sometime and paint something more traditionally scenic.

*Smiles* You know, I've been to San Francisco myself a few times with my friend, Paul who showed me a few landmarks and the Easter Day parade but I don't ever recall even hearing about the Palace of Fine Arts from him. I'm glad that you were able to find something like this out there....

You know, maybe it is too soon to say but I think that this might be the last time that I ever use this account. I think so. It feels like everything that needs to be done has beendone. Thank you for everything, Jean

You can see it best from the water.  It's somewhat hidden, but it's a HUGE dome, very visible from the right angles.  This was built for the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition.  There's some great old photos in the wikipedia article

You really are a big fan of history, which suits because I'm a big fan of domes. *Grins* Thank you for the link, friend

Thank you!  It's truly a beautiful location, and impossible for me to do true justice to.  A bygone era writ in stone.
