Portrait replays of two buildings

These two building portraits, of 278 University Avenue, Palo Alto, and of 64 Willow Place, Menlo Park, were created from direct painting on-site en plein air for the purpose of producing an artistic replay recording video that was shown as the buildings’ owner, Roxy Rapp, made remarks on accepting the Presidential Citation Award at the American Institute of Architects Santa Clara Valley Chapter 2016 Design Awards Gala in the San Jose Marriott on October 13th, 2016. By coincidence the location of the Gala was also where my artwork series, The Story of Silicon Valley, is permanently installed.

The building portraits were painted directly on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil the app Procreate.
