Box number 2 is all finished

I put the graffiti coat on the boxes last night and said good bye to my little camp on the corner.
I had been so apprehensive about the neighborhood but it turned out to be one of the friendliest places that I have worked. The subject of local landscape is good for these boxes because people are constantly asking where the scenes are and really seem to like it when they figure it out. 
I had only a few crazy things happen. I did receive another dollar from a fan. 
One of the nicest things was my new friend Mr. Lee who brought me a carton of 2% milk every morning.

Box number 2

Just a little more to go on box # 2.
When it's all done and sealed, I'll post videos. It's a wonderful neighborhood although working on this last side is a little intense at rush hour. That's what I tried last night around 5 and I just gave up. Will post again at the end if the day.

Wilshire and Normandie #1 almost done

The weather was better today and after the  early appointments for my 91 year old Mom and before class at 3pm,  there were a few good hours. In the words of one of my teachers, ' if this was easy everyone would do it' ...... see my foot off the curb in LA.
and thank you to Mike and Elizabeth for the photo.

Thursday night and almost there with box #1

Here is the week. I've been focused on my outdoor studio and didn't do so well with my blog entries. 
Will try to write. I did receive another $1.00 contribution from an admirer.

I finished the first side and have #2 about half way there. Getting into the routine. I bought knee pads that keep my knees good. I had some problems on Thursday with the wind. Something got in my eye and I had to stop and go to CVS to get contact solution to wash it out. But yesterday was easy.

Wednesday at Wilshire and Normandie

I got the box all primed yesterday and then the wind started blowing. This morning was perfect and I got pretty far before class at 2.
This is a really nice neighborhood. People are very friendly and interested. Some people even thanked me for painting the box white.

Day one at the corner of Wilshire and Normandie

This is all ready for priming in the am, then perhaps at least an under painting by the end of the day. It's really good to be outdoors. No one really talked to me except the people who work in the parking lot at the Line Hotel. It was really cute. They called over to tell me they were going home
