"la vida loca de un artista" set, #3, may 2011
* / "the crazy life of artists" set consists of many paintings and drawings that were commenced on may 9, after moving my studio outdoors. This set is inspired by the "en plein air" artists of Los Angeles who work day and night /mostly at night/ in the barrios of Los Angeles. Their method of painting consists in the use of bright colored enamel spray paints. To imitate their quick spray paint strokes, I am using 1",2',3" house paint brushes taped to broom sticks which allow me fast strokes resembling those achieved with spray cans. The subject matter is drawn from my experiences as an "artist'. Not that of a business man and family man. They are done to taped music favored by our artist friends of the 60's through 80's.
