Painted this one day after work in La Jolla.
Found this one by accident one afternoon and it was still up under gray skies the next morning when I had some time to paint.
Reception: Friday June 29, 5-9 PM.
Please join us for “Tents,” a collection of my paintings of fumigation tented buildings from 2017-2018. This is the first time I’ve shown such a large group of pictures from this series.

This area is called Allied Gardens, one of San Diego’s postwar suburbs. It has curving residential streets and culdesacs that branch off a busy road lined with strip malls. There are suburbs like this all over the country, places that once offered an idea of safety and a particular way of life and to some extent still do.
I have grown interested in this type of area recently. They really say a lot about American culture.
I am happy with this little painting, done as fast as possible. The trash guys dumped the tree out of the trash can into the street. I loved the passive aggressiveness of that.
Trash cans are the cows of urban landscape.
