This is in the big scale industrial area of LA called Vernon, the paper mill is over a hundred years old . I almost dropped to my knees in wonder when I found it in the morning. This this is the oldest and most spectacular factory I've ever painted. I was set to meet painting pals J- Mac and now ex- student William Moore that afternoon, and I almost didn't take them there. I liked it so much a wave of selfishness washed over me, I wanted to keep it to myself. On the other hand I had to share it with them, how couldn't I?
I did 80% of it PA and the sun was gone. Just finished it in the studio.
