Beauty

This wall is on the side of  T & T Auto, Pennington and Prospect St in Trenton, NJ.  The wall has always been some what controversial with the Neighbors, but the owner Cliff always had my back. It definitely did not help that the last two walls, although both had a positive message, involved the devil. So when I decided to re-paint the wall I wanted to do two things: 1. Do the wall in a similar fashion to the way I do my water colors. 2. Paint something beautiful that the neighbors would love. So I worked the background and Ras did the portrait ( a random picture of Model Sincerely Ward). Ras was half-way done with the portrait when one of the neighbors stopped and said that  the portrait looked like a demon, because it was blue.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

Anne’s Garage 2010

I originally painted the piece on the bottom based on a Spanish landscape painting for my friend Anne in 2003. She had problems with kids running through her alley and tagging  her garage door. The piece ran for many years without any issues until  about 6 months ago someone tagged some obscenities over it. So, Anne asked me to come repaint it I showed her some of the recent sketches I have been doing and she told me to run with it. The Layout is based on the freestyle friday week #15.

"Lost in the Sunshine" was a repaint job/ graffiti cover up from 2003
