Sneak Preview: Aaron Zube’s Dreamy Bernal Heights Paintings




Neighbor Aaron Zube recently shared images of his Bernal Heights paintings over in the drop-dead sexy Bernalwood Flickr group, and his work blew me away.

“Huh? WOW! What? How?” I asked. Neighbor Aaron explains:

I’ve been living in Bernal (on Bocana street) for about four years now — the paintings are mostly of my immediate surroundings. In this series, I’m trying to capture the feeling of the light & character of the neighborhood. The painting technique is relatively slow &  involves multiple layers of translucent oil paint to give a luminous quality to the painted surface. The entire series should be complete this Fall when I’ll be showing the paintings at Inclusions Gallery.

    Aaron is so very talented. I’m lucky to have one of his paintings in my home.

    I love this work. I feel a kinship to it with my fog images even though I photograph and he paints. Trying to figure out how I can afford one for my house.

    It’s too bad (for me) that all of his work appears to be sold out. Good for him though! :-/
