The Cathedral of Christ the Light, Oakland, California

We spent a warm and beautiful May 1st evening sketching in the The Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland.  Also called the Oakland Cathedral, it is the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Oakland. When we arrived someone was playing the organ and later the choir was practicing. The space filled with light and the voices in the incredible acoustics of the building made a perfect sketching day. The design of the building is by the architect Craig W. Hartman
