This one’s from back in October, but I’d neglected to put the telephone wires in.
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.”
This older painting is still one of my favorites. What I love about it is the way the building glows inside the termite tent- they left on the floodlights and in some of the apartments. (I thought you were supposed to cut off the power before tenting, but I’m no expert). And it always takes me back to that cool, wet-smelling night with a marine layer overhead.
Here’s a link to the rest of this series of termite tent paintings. It’s a subject that always draws me back.
I thought the colors of this termite tent were especially nice.
