Painted my first electrical box in Long Beach!!!

So today I started painting my very first electrical box in down town Long Beach on Chestnut and 6th st.
Waking up to a gloomy day, I wasn't betting on getting to go out and paint. My mentor said let's go...thankfully it was only a light sprinkle. We sketched the image and began the first layer.
Today was a dream come true...while painting the people from the neighborhood stopped by and thanked us for making their neighborhood look beautiful. It was pure Joy!!!
These pics are a work in progress.

Go Bep Go!!!

Happy Birthday to my right ElectroBoobie...Bff...Beth Sands!!
I know a woman who is so super awsome and amazing! Shes a shining star that I look up to.
What do you get a gal like this for her bday?? No clue...but I will paint her a piece :)
The Canvas I used for her piece has actually gone through several rounds of paint...from a sexy naked tattooed man to a flock of birds I was going to give to someone..(thankfully he didn't get it) now Beppy's piece.
Canvas can go through so many changes and faces. Layers upon layers...the beauty is that the layers will always  be there adding to the new or final piece.
There are two sayings on the piece that read:
LET'S GO BEP GO! (which is bepy's theme) and "The Kids are coming up" a saying from one of her fav. jams.
Happy bday beppy...thank you for inspiring me.

Summer Time In tha LBC

Well I sure have been enjoying the summer, I haven't really painted much. after the Switch Foot  show. I needed a little bit of a creative break.  Although I did begin a new venture "Painting with Kids" and I must say it is a breath of fresh air. Children have no boundaries and are so free.
My Art Collective Squeeze just locked down Nov 3rd for our 1 Year anniversary.  Just to get you a little excited...we are going all out for this show, as it marks a year of our hard work and dedication.
Katie, Roxy, Laura, Taysha and I have really taken our once known as "little paint club" into something really special. Our long term goal is to become a Non Prof- fit Organization. Stay in the know..because we are about to Squeeze LBC good!!!
