Temescal Tidbits, Oakland

Temescal Clark Street Victorian, ink & watercolor, 5.5x8"
Although my wonky sketch makes it look rather spooky, this is actually a lovely, well-maintained home in the Temescal district of Oakland. 

Barber's motorcycle, ink, 4x6"
We met for our Tuesday evening sketching in Temescal Alley, a historic semi-restored block of tiny shops that was formerly a horse stable. Temescal Alley Barber Shop is an amazing place with old-fashioned everything (except the barbers who are anything but old-fashioned).
