This painting will be exhibited for the first time at the coming Solo Show, "Abstract Metropolis" at Parisoma in San Francisco, January 18th to February 21st, 2018. And will also be exhibited "FACADES: Central City Architecture" at the annual "SF History Days" at the Old Mint, March 2018.

In the painting, The Palace & Carpets II, merges the Palace Hotel and the façade of + CARPETS, the original façade of Furniture and Carpets, located at Market and 7th Streets. This is a replica of the first painting I did back in 2006. The Palace Hotel, a San Francisco city landmark is located at 2 New Montgomery Street at the corner of Market, was built in 1875 by the architect John P. Gaynor. The famous tenor, Enrico Caruso was a guest at the hotel on April 18th, 1906, the same day the great earthquake and fire hit. This hotel survived the quake structurally and it took 3 years to re-build. Today, the Palace Hotel, continues to glow, a sophisticated and marvelous hotel. Both The Palace Hotel + CARPETS, were re-built after the 1906 earthquake. The orange-red sky surrounds the setting, alive and on fire. San Francisco continues to rise. No matter how many fires and earthquakes burns and destroys, the city re-builds.
