Los Feliz Mural Installation - Day 3 - Completion!!!!

Today was my third day installing this colorful mural at the home of my clients in Los Feliz. Just below the entrance of Griffith Park, I enjoyed a sunny day of painting, complete with the sounds of Aretha Franklin doing her sound check for her concert at the Greek Theater which was across the valley from the home. I LOVE MY JOB!!!!
I am really pleased with the final outcome.

Los Feliz Mural Installation - Day 2

Today was a long working day.... I started painting at 9:00 a.m.... and stopped when I started getting "loopy" at 7:00 p.m. I did take about 45 minutes to round up some lunch and an iced coffee...... but otherwise it was non-stop painting....

I made considerable progress, and discovered something about myself.... I get hung up in the little details... and lose track of time... those orange trees were a challenge, but once I stood back and let the paint settle a bit, I found I liked what I had done...

I am personally proud of the avocados hanging from the tree in the upper right hand corner. I just want to pick one and make some guacamole. YUM!!!!

I'm guessing one more day of painting and I'll be done with this one! We'll see what my schedule let's me do in the next week.

Happy Painting!

Los Feliz Mural Installation - Day 1

I started the installation of a new project in Los Feliz this morning. I spent about 5 hours prepping, painting the base coat and getting the first images blocked in. I'll be back at the end of the week for a full day of painting...
