Suisun Valley Landmarks: A Walk Down Memory Lane
Watercolor and Acrylic Paintings from the "Suisun Valley Series"
by Donna Covey
Donna Covey's book, "Suisun Valley Landmarks: A Walk Down Memory Lane," provides a nostalgic and personal view of the rustic wine country of the Suisun Valley. Suisun Valley, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, and its familiar landmarks are depicted in brilliant watercolor and acrylic paintings and are accompanied by personal anecdotes with valley folklore - information you won't find on the internet.
I am a San Francisco Bay Area native, living in Benicia, CA. Don't ask me why, but I enjoy painting buildings and signs from locations that have had an impact on my life. I recently completed the "Suisun Valley Series" depicting landmarks from an area I love: the Suisun Valley in California where I grew up. My newly published book "Suisun Valley Landmarks: A Walk Down Memory Lane" is a presentation of the thirteen Suisun Valley locations that have stood the test of time. Each painting is accompanied by a vignette; a story about the location that you won't find on the internet. I am now beginning several new series of paintings; North Beach Neighborhoods, the Class of '67, and Benicia Alleys and Side Streets. My intent is to find and enhance - with splashy color - the beauty of existing buildings and signs and include a little whimsy in the process.
