Across the Golden Gate from where he grew up in San Francisco, this now built-up neighborhood of Strawberry Point was, in Charles Rollo Peters' time, a rural and fairly wild cape. As a young artist he was attracted to its hills and inlets. In this painting he interprets a simple scene in rich subjective color. What is curious is the inclusion of the signpost standing askew in the water; it demands our attention and gives the scene a feel of awkward human intrusion.
