oil on canvas
6" x 6"
I went out on Sunday with Sarah and Karen to Echo Park. It was hard to believe how beautiful it was. Warm sun, perfect light. I did some other paintings that were so, so but I liked this little bungalow with the pink gate. Alvarado and Fargo, if you're in the neighborhood.
I'm getting ready to start some more signal boxes and that's what I've been painting for the last few weeks. There's a new supervisor in LB who feels that if there is any empty space on the box, it will be tagged. I'm not exactly onboard with this because I put graffiti coat on the boxes and eventually they will probably get something but it can just be wiped off. I'll post the new images but here is one with the snowy egrets added to fill up the sky. This box will be at Long Beach Boulevard and 47th Street and I'm starting on two at The Promenade and 1st Street.

we had a model in the studio on Saturday. I ended up having a little time to paint too.
