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.
