Here is the stuido version. 16x24 oil on wood.
Here is a little alley painting (6x8 oil on linen) I did in LA's Chinatown. I like it enough that I did a larger version that I will post in when it dries. I really enjoyed painting this one. I was able to let quite a bit of the "wash in" show through and it has an abstract quality I'm striving for. Edward Sego is a big influence and I hope this one for the first time would give me the right to lick the bottom of his dung covered shoes.
What was cute was a group of old Chinese ladies were taking there daily walk about, but I guess they don't like to cross street as they kept going around in a circle, passing by me and J- Mac about every 10 minutes for two hours. Talk about creatures of habit.
There was a little man sewing in the alley, but the figure would have been too small to see. I did put him in the big version. The spots of color are hanging clothes.
