A hot day in January in La Jolla. Finished painting, put back on my shirt, went up the stairs, met a porn star.
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.
Painted on location in Balboa Park last spring.
This one’s from back in October, but I’d neglected to put the telephone wires in.
Some houses in the neighborhood.
A palm tree in the neighborhood. 10 x 10 inches.
When I was working on this one, a worker from the fumigation company came over and asked if I was “that guy from Instagram who paints the tents.”
