In my continued effort to include figures in several of my new paintings, this is "Girl On Bike, Pacific Beach", 18 x 20.5 inches, oil on canvas. I used to live in Pacific Beach when I was a teenager, before I left for Art Center. To this day, I don't know how I managed to live there and yet stay out of trouble (PB is quite the party town). I always liked the old houses around there, so I thought I'd use it as a location for this idea I've had for a painting of a girl on a bike. She's talking on her cell phone, headed to the beach.

Viaduct Bridge

"Viaduct Bridge", 18 x 18 inches, oil on canvas. This is another spot along the LA River, when I started this painting, I considered adding all of the graffiti that was on the bridge... it had quite a bit. But I liked it better in this "cleaned up" version.
