Some houses in the neighborhood.
I’ve been painting the houses in the neighborhood as they get fumigated.
Often the evening light here in Sherman Heights looks like Armageddon. Maybe it’s the fumes off the freeway scattering the light on the gleaming overpass infrastructure.
I live a few blocks from this Victorian apartment building. I painted this last year around this time. Since then, one of the apartments in the building burned, and now it’s behind scaffolding.
This spot is a few blocks from my house in the Sherman Heights historic district. I went down to try to capture it.
I think of this place as the Carrie House since it reminds me so much of the house in the original Carrie with Sissy Spacek. The architecture is similar, but far from identical.
It’s a happy story of this area of urban renewal- undergoing a slow renovation by a do-it-yourselfer with black chickens in the yard (chickens not pictured). This house is just a couple of blocks from mine- (already renovated, built circa 1905) and recently got a historical designation. I think the plaque outside says it’s from the 1890s.
