San Pedro Shipyard I, California Landscape Painting

San Pedro Shipyard I
San Pedro Shipyard I


Soaring high in the gray sky, the Vincent Thomas bridge looks impressive.  One of the longest suspension bridges in California, it connects San Pedro and the largely industrial Terminal Island, carrying significant truck traffic for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.


Seen from the San Pedro side, Terminal Island doesn't look so inviting as the nearby Catalina Island.  While Catalina, known for its pristine landscapes, is a popular vacation spot in Southern California, Terminal Island is... not.  Here all we see seems to be colossal cargo vessels, heavy equipment, and lots and lots of containers being loaded and unloaded.  To me, however, this is just as exciting as a painting subject.
