Pull


Oil on Wood 16x24

I'll do an update on the show next week when paint dries and I get some time. This is the corner of Sunland and SF again. Buddy Aaron fortuitously "posed" for the figure. We were walking along and he got ahead while I was camera fiddling. When I looked up he was in the perfect spot for a figure, so I told him freeze and he did. His pose was a little weirdly tiled so I tilted it more in the painting to add to the attraction of the Mc Donald's sign compelling him to go eat... no time for the other artist thing this week.

I love the sublime that you find in the ordinary.
I am going to be doing some painting that involves some corporate logos as well. Have you had any trouble with copyrights when doing scenes that have these logos?

Love the river of red at the bottom. The loose approach has an edge.. and the pull has taken the tide out and left the Happy Meal eaters safely in the precinct of Mayor McCheese.
