San Francisco Lyon Street StepsKathleen Elsey Solo Exhibition
San Francisco
September 2 - December 31, 2014

My painting, "Lyon Street Steps, Afternoon", is featured in my solo exhibition in San Francisco. Also included in the exhibition are my landscape paintings vibrant with color, beach paintings dancing with movement and still life paintings full of memories. I made a "sneak preview" video of my studio and how I made this painting and you can see it by clicking on the small image of the unfinished painting.

Learn more about my paintings and my process through this 2013 interview by Daniel Kepl of “Bravo California!“ See the interview here.
