STARRY STARRY NIGHT





Yes this is a repost of this painting, but after a long look like I do of my work I felt it to be a little bar and because its my painting, I can do whatever I want... I added the electric & phone poles with wires and all along with headlights coming down the street... I feel, it made such a difference to the composition and look, it deserves another peek...
Living in and around LA is a real treat. The stories that float in the air and tabloids is very much what LA is about... Its a city not for everyone, the pace, the rhythm, the sights & sounds is a living entity onto itself.... I moved to California a long time ago when I was just a little lad. Lived all over this part of southern California... People mark there spot and status by saying where they live, even if its only a block over.. I live "West of" or "East of" all that denotes a hierarchy even if its only in the mind of the person that is telling you... I do get a kick out of it all... The greatest eye-candy in the world and for good eats.. Its a no-brainer... Oil on Birch panel, mounted on a varnished wooden box thats almost 1-5/8" in depth. $130 (Sold)
