Sunland and San Fernando
San Fernando Blvd 12x 16 oil on wood
Here are two paintings near the corner of Sunland and San Fernando Road. Can you tell me what they have in common besides location?
Sunland is a pretty rough area; old industry, junkyards; gravel pits Garbage dumps and junkies along with hard working immigrants. A lot of Burbank and LA were built out of tearing the resources out of this area. After all these years they finally got their first health clinic this year.
I wanted to go into a nearby huge wild looking “pull your own” junkyard, but the feisty little Pilipino Barney Fife security guard wouldn’t let me take in the camera. Apparently I would make the thieves and EX- cons uncomfortable. It’s funny there’s still places were middle class whites can’t go.
