daily painting | alameda stucco

Alameda has some interesting architecture. I have no idea of the local creative folks designing these stucco (I think?) homes, but the interesting shapes and cutouts are lots of fun, and I photograph them while riding my bike to the market to get dinner so I can paint at home. I think this one was on Grand. Not sure of vintage — 1950s maybe? Very distinctive and charming, though my interpretation isn’t exactly to code. Was especially lovely to be biking across town after the marine layer moved in — the current temperate climate is far more comfortable for such outings than temps in the 100s when I melt and look for AC in the movie theater or Safeway. Anything for relief.
