Randy and I visited San Diego last December, 2014.  The purpose was both business and fun. (Randy was taking a course on data metrics and analysis. He takes every opportunity to increase his skills for his job at Exterran. I am proud of him and also very grateful for the times I can accompany him.) During this trip, I had some time to myself to explore downtown San Diego.  I noticed these two gorgeous Art Deco relief panels on a neglected building.  I was utterly taken with two female figures. They reminded me of the sinuous beauties drawn by Alphonse Mucha during the turn of the 20th century Art Nouveau era.  The movement of the slyth-like women contrasted with the linear, stark structure.  I realized that I am drawn to similar contrasts and took this picture to remind me of my insight when I returned to my studio.
