I finished this side yesterday just in time for the December art walk. Even got the four coats of graffiti protection. I'm exhausted. If you look at the clearance between the box and the street, it's not much. I'll measure but it's less that 36". I put on layers and layers of clothes and at one point earplugs. Started working in the rain one day but it stopped and all was well in the end.
This side of the street was a little easier because there wasn't the constant spill of people getting off the Metro and busses but there was a major bus and trucks and people. Mostly lots of supportive and appreciative people but some funny stories. One ten year old girl came by with her mom and in kind of a hysterical voice said, "what if you make a mistake?" Now there's a real artist in the making.

I worked on these studies over the week end and came up with four landscapes that are from the surrounding neighborhood. I went just a couple of blocks in each direction from where the box is located.
this location is less congested than the other corner because there's no bus stop.The weather is good so I'm excited to get going!

I'm very happy to report that I get to do another box on the other corner of Wilshire and Western- the south west corner for neighborhood followers. I've been working on ideas for the past two weeks and will get the studio done this week. Then it's out to prep and prime and then get to work.
The above painting isn't finished yet. It's the historic Langham building- site of lots of old movies. I'll add more detail in the am.
And this is 6th Street that includes the Chapman Market circa 1928.
