Getting Close

I have the four paintings for the next box but two are not quite there. Here are the two I am confident about.

 These two not so much.. yet. Just a little work tomorrow. 

Looking forward to posts of box prep this week at the southwest corner of Wilton and Wilshire!

Another utility box is underway

I had a slow day in the studio and got to really get going on ideas for the box at the S/W corner of Wilshire and Wilton. Great afternoon.

Do you ever graduate from the studio?

Ahhh it's the worst part of the job. Dr Lindsay came to the studio as she started her PhD program at UCLA but then she earned her degree and was offered a tenure track position in Oklahoma. Mara (right) came at age 12 but she just grew up and was accepted at a prestigious art school in Belgium. Both have worked here for 6 years. Jake became good friends with all of us. 
It's been a great privilege to work with you two brilliant women.

Water colors for just fun

Sometimes it’s just too much to take all the oil painting supplies down from the  the studio and out to the car, especially after such a long week. I’ve been keeping the watercolors handy and have these two paintings - one from the 4th of July camping trip and one from this afternoon.
Lundy Canyon and 5th and Bonito in Long Beach.

Working on Side 2

I went out after the LIfe Drawing Workshop and stayed until 7pm. I was pretty tired but got a lot done. Classes will keep me away until Thursday then I think I can finish this side.

Starting on another utility box

I'm working on a utility box on the northwest corner of Wilshire and Wilton this week. I put it off for weeks first because of bad weather then because the studio was busy and then because it's hard to pack everything out onto the sidewalk. But once I did, it's the best ever work. Friday a work truck pulled up and asked if I could use a pack of shop towels (yes!) Today I got a Sprite. Don't usually drink that but it was delicious. And I haven't even started painting. Many folks at this point thing I'm doing graffiti clean up maybe as a volunteer or community service. The boxes need some arduous prep before they can be painted but I'm ready to go.
