Happy 79th Birthday, Golden Gate Bridge!

It’s 79 years since the Golden Gate Bridge opened! I’m lucky to live close enough to see it. drive across it and sketch it often.

Here are some sketches of it I’ve done over the last few years: some from vista points in San Francisco, some from across the Bay in Marin County,and one on the bridge and the wind whipped around me.


I love the color of that bridge. ( International Orange is it’s official name). And I love that some days you see it and some days it disappears into the mist.

Happy Birthday, Golden Gate Bridge!
