A View that Gives Me a Rush

Rush, 9" x 12"

Santa Barbara is beautiful. But LA serves up exciting vistas that really inspire me. I grew up in LA and worked with my father during the summer at his Downtown office when I was a teenager. There was special meaning for me to capture a scene I always found beautiful: city and traffic lights at dusk. I'm sure I traveled down that very street in the painting dozens of times with my dad when I was a kid. I never fail to appreciate the effect of car exhaust and urban humanity has on the evening sky.
I am honored to have this piece accepted into the California Art Club show currently hanging in Hennessy + Ingalls Art & Architecture Bookstore in the Third Street Mall in Santa Monica. The show hangs until January 15. The Opening Reception is tomorrow night. I'm looking forward to experiencing a bit of the LA art scene.
