Description Oh Mighty Marriott, My Egypt, presents the facade of San Francisco's Marriott Hotel of 4th and Mission Streets. This hotel rises 39 stories high in the skyline. The building has different looks while viewing from a far. It may look like a jukebox . It may have a robotic influence. It can also be seen as an Egyptian Sphinx! The best thing about this hotel is visiting its top floor where the restaurant is at, and while there take a look at the magnificent view of the city! This painting reflects a modern look, in bright and sold tones. The title for this painting is inspired by the Precisionist painter, Charles Demuth, of his painting titled, 'My Egypt'.
