Paint Burlingame Results

Sergio Lopez and Gerald de Dios attended the "Paint Burlingame" paint out back in August. Sergio set up at two locations behind the Burlingame Train Station.
This oil painting shows a corner building off Burlingame
Avenue and E Lane, known as "The Candy Store".

Here's another fantastic oil painting
of the Burlingame High School.

Gerald planned on painting an old historical house or maybe a Market corner, but continued driving around and came across the Burlingame Library. He found a cozy spot across the street and spent a couple hours painting under some nice shady trees.

It was a great event ran by the Burlingame Historical Society. Gerald managed to sell his gouache painting and Sergio sold his "Candy Store" oil painting. That same painting helped Sergio take home the "Best in Show" Award.
Sergio's painting will be printed as next year's "Paint Burlingame" poster!


  1. Gerald and Sergio - These paintings are all strong and very depictive of the area. Burlingame didn't know what hit 'em with you two in town! Of course I really love the trees and shadow & light on the various buildings. Great job!

  2. I love these paintings - well done to both - I'm going to suggest to Berkeley Historical Society that they have a similar event but I'm not sure they'd be very keen. Have a great weekend.
