Citizenship Ceremony - A Time to Celebrate!

cynthiapalmer_citizenshipceremony.jpg

A big day at my dear Egyptian girlfriends’ #citizenship ceremony at the #paramounttheateroakland.

Gives me goosebumps witnessing this citizenship ceremony where 88 Countries are represented and 810 people are receiving their formal certificate of immigration. It took 16 years to get to this day! Egyptians are labeled as “Arab”, which lengthened the process even though they are a different culture. Congrats are in order!!! Every American should attend one! It makes me appreciate our country even during these challenging times to realize how blessed we are!

10 Favorites at the Legion of Honor Museum

Click photos to View>

Here are my favorite paintings from "Truth & Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites & Old Masters" Exhibition at Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco.

The Pre-Raphaelites were disrupters of their time during the mid 1800's, reinterpreting and harkening back to Old Masters painters, while choosing to paint with more vivid colors and including lots of textures, textiles and an homage to nature. Can you tell which paintings are old masters of the 14th Century and those of the 18th Century?

Taking time to experience art, learn and get my culture on inspires my design in preparing listings for market! I truly love this museum and their wonderful exhibitions. Make sure to catch this one through September 30, 2018

"Hi!" From the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco

Saturday Morning...

I'm walking up to #legionofhonor Museum to take in the special exhibit, Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and Old Masters, followed by lunch in one of my favorite Cafe's in San Francisco. Did you know the Chef pares the menu to the exhibit?

The gorgeous Neo-classical style Museum is a 3/4 replica of the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur on Paris' Left Bank. Built in the 1920's by Adolph B. Spreckels, for his wife Alma and for the boys who were lost in the Great War (World War I). She later donated the Museum to the City of SF.

The Grounds are are beautiful with views of the Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge, Ocean, Downtown and nearby, is the Land's End Trail.

Stay tuned for my 10 FAVORITE PAINTINGS!

"Cool Gray City of Love" and The Filbert Steps

Keeping that Work/Life Balance! My friend Pamela Belknap and I have been reading “Cool Gray City of Love” by Gary Kamiya and are walking once a week to a different SF location mentioned in the book.
 
Last Friday we did the Filbert Steps/Grace Marchant Garden and ended in Levi Plaza and went on to North Beach for pizza and a huge salad at Tony’s Pizza Napoletana!

San Francisco Always Delights! So much to see and do!
