Union Square feeding Pigeons

Today another day filled with sunshine, but very cold, tomorrow expecting 6 to 9" of snow!
This painting shows my sister and me in San Francisco at the Union Square. We loved going there and feeding the pigeons bags of green peas bought at this huge indoor Farmers Market. We lived about a block away from the Union Square when we first moved to S.F. the hotel was a fleabag hotel, mom working across the street at KNBC Radio Station. Needless to say we did not stay there long, but what an experience!
It's amazing it took so little to entertain children in those days. We learned English quite fast because mom would take us to the movies a great deal, the Alexandria Theater, Fox and the Coronet came to mind...maybe this is why I like watching all the old movies on TCM.
