So many times I see changes in the subjects I chose to paint. One of the biggest changes I have observed is the way they changed the Casa de Bandini building in Old Town San Diego. It had been changed back to the original name, Cosmopolitan Hotel. I can’t believe how it changed so much as shown here in my picture of the painting that I did while visiting Old Town back in the early 90’s. And now, look how it has a new look in this photo here. I’m glad I had a chance to paint it when it looked so charming.One of my mentors, Mr. Landry is in one of the pictures here, as he was painting that same building many years ago. Also a photo I took a long time ago.
