Our Saturday sketch group met at the Santa Rosa Mall. It was raining when we got there, but the sun came out. So, I decided to go outside and try to capture the Empire Building on the new Santa Rosa Plaza,. It's in the process of being reunited after many years of division (seems they cut a street right through he plaza in the 1960's). Anywho... I thought this old office building had many good qualities. The new owners are going to renovate the building and make a hotel out of it. Good idea for the downtown area sorely needs a quality hotel.
