Mark Ulriksen, Two Fans, 10 x 8 inches

This painting was really Melicious' favorite. I love it too and it's special to us, not just because we love Mr. Ulriksen's style (which we first saw on a New Yorker cover) but because it depicts one of our favorite places, Pacific Bell Park (now AT&T Park), home of the SF Giants. We bought in July of 2000, a little more than a year after the park opened. Also, the gentleman depicted is the spitting image of our longtime hairstylist, Gene Hays, and the bottle in the upper left is an Anchor Steam , Crionna's favorite beer.

This painting was also, I believe, the first of a few where we had a penchant for buying the painting depicted on the announcement card that Thomas Reynolds sent out to invite us to the opening.
