My giclee walnut creek pictures are a tribute to a most wonderful place I spent a week back in the 80’s while improving my computer graphics skills.
I had come to San Francisco, CA, to study and learn computer graphics along with other art subjects to improve my skills as a fine artist.
Walnut Creek, a nice town in the SF Bay Area quite unknown to most Brazilians, as me, was presenting a sunny afternoon as I was trying to find the place I would have to stay for the next few weeks.
My studies in RGB colors would take a week and I decided that sleeping “in loco” would be more efficient.
My family would still stay in San Francisco during that week and I would sleep in an Inn until de that next Sunday.
The most incredible thing about studying there, as in most my experiences as a student in America, is that you can feel an objective approach to teaching.
While there, I was able to go on a most interesting field trip to a newly founded company that was starting to bid on a new form of art: video games That company was Electronic Arts, venturing its first steps before becoming a giant in the entertainment industry.

Although it is not as large as neighboring Concord, Walnut Creek serves as a hub for the neighboring cities within central Contra Costa County, partly because of its location, at the junction of the highways from Sacramento and San Jose (I-680) and San Francisco/Oakland (SR-24) and its accessibility by BART. The city’s total estimated population, as of 2014, is 67,673.
