Bill and Tony's under the freeway adventure
Under the Over 11x 14 oil on canvas board
Several weeks ago Tony and I went to San Pedro to takes pictures of the area. After shooting all day we thought we were done for the night, but while tooling along home we decided to shoot the metro LACMTA station at where the century freeway crosses the Harbor freeway.
Taco's at Midnight 11x14 oil on linen
It was pretty late, but our art reference blood was up so we parking the car on Figueroa. I noticed a taco wagon down a side street that became the little painting above. We walked along an off ramp for a bit them doubled back and across the freeway taking a long walk to the Metro station.
We toured the train platform where we encountered a local who wasn't in a hurry to catch his train.
On the way down to the bus platform I spotted a crack whore way down on the bottom level, as I took her picture a gentleman shoved a low rent blackberry like device under my nose with an image of a diamond necklace or something. The considerate midnight salesman hoped I shared his fascination with the bling, but I politely excused myself to continue down with my business at hand. The whore was in rough shape, clearly she was in the most desperate of states as she snuck up behind me while I was taking pictures... then thought the better of it when I turned around she veered off.
Continuing on past another gentleman working the pipe for all it was worth,( behide the pillar) I went past the last bus stop and started down the center-dividing strip on the Harbor freeway.
Tony soon caught up to me and we went along quite a ways in the dark. Good spooky times.
