MoM by EROS 2009

Painted in 2009 for my Mom's B-day on a local bike trail bridge. Freestyle. Late night solo mission. Funny thing about this photo, is that the piece is actually bent around a corner. This is the view from the straight on angle. If you look at the wall from their perspective angles, you can only see half the piece. I would say the wall is at about a 75 degree angle from the flat side under the bridge. I painted it this way because many times when I've painted bridges like these, people fly by so fast that they don't actually get a chance to read what it says. I figured this way I would catch their attention from a distance and they would be able to see it better on the approach. Not to mention, I've had many pieces buffed on the inside of bridges like this and wanted to make it a little more difficult. The outside walls have indentations that move in and out about 2 inches on it. I brought my Mom out to check it out the next day and get a photo in front of it. I painted a similar one in 1989 for her and we did the same. It was really cool to do it again for her 20 years later. Normally, pieces under this spot only run about 3-5 days at the most. I think the buff crew might have liked this one. It ran for around 3 months. I think it would have probably stayed up longer but some other writers came and hit up the bridge all around it with tags and throw-ups. Then they buffed it all. Fun times!
