Old Mulholland Highway
About eight years ago I tried selling small paintings through an on line auction site. This is one of the first paintings I sold and it went to Patt Morrison, well known columnists for the Los Angeles Times, commentator for NPR Morning Edition and host, at the time, of The BookShow on KCET in Los Angeles. I'm honored that she has it.
I was out painting on Mulholland Highway somewhere in the Santa Monica Mountains and I decided to paint the road as if it might have looked back in the 20s or 30s, before it was paved. I eliminated whatever architecture was visible and came up with this 6" x 8" painting.
