From the Marin Headlands, one can see a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline. It is even more spectacular on a windy, stormy day when there is a break in the sky. I did another Golden Gate Bridge painting recently, as you can see below. The earlier painting shows the famous red suspension bridge from Baker Beach, which stretches a mile below the rugged cliffs on the Presidio's western shoreline. You can see the Marin Headlands in the distance.
I casually mentioned to my husband how I wished I had had more references of the bridge. He said, "Really? I have some." He went to his computer right away and showed me the pictures he took while visiting San Francisco on a business trip last year. That's how the second painting above came about. I don't know what I would do without him!

So which painting of the Golden Gate Bridge do you like better? By the way, I am counting today's painting as one of my June Challenge series because it has a ship in it!
