Forty55 in Marina del Rey

Turning this drab little cardio room into a happy space with a nice bright abstract cityscape of Silicon Beach/LA. I really liked this color pallet. My favorite feature is the half power symbol reflecting in the mirror to make a whole. I now have intimate knowledge of Joshua Trees and Palm Trees.

The fan made the paint dry too quickly, so I had to turn it off which also turned off one row of lights. It was like painting in a creepy sci-fi episode, when you want someone to just reach over there and flip on the light switch...

Thank yous to Out-fit for the commission. Lisa P. for working with me. Pete Cross always, and this time for a little OT weekend painting spree. Olga S. for late night painting assists.

E11even Lofts: Maps + Murals = my perfect projecto


The remodeling of E11even Lofts' lobby designed by Studio 11 Design included this very radical concrete wall map.
Nights spent with the security team and the hoards of dog walkers are the cornerstone of the project.


The texture of the concrete was really nice to work with.And everyone walking by all say saying, oh my god you are so patient. So Apparently I'm patient.
Thanks kind sir for stopping to smell the roses.

I don't think anyone can grow unless they are loved exactly as they are now, appreciated for what they are rather than what they will be.

A quote I saw at the tea shop yesterday that I like.

Timelapse of the mural

I made a timelapse from the GoPro footage we set up on top of the bouldering wall.This was actually a ton of bootwork, setting it up, unloading the footage every day, editing down all of the paint mixing, and double and triples paint coats. My thanks to the individuals below, especially Pete Cross.

"There is a place in the soul that neither time, nor space, nor no created things can touch."
- Meister Eckhart

"Your identity is not equivalent to your biography and there is a place in you where you have never been wounded, where there is still a sureness in you, where there's a seamlessness in you and where there is confidence and tranquility in you. The intention of prayer and spirituality and love is now and again to visit that inner kind of sanctuary."
- John O'Donohue on OnBeing with Krista Tippett
"Stress is a perverted relationship to time, so rather than being a subject of your own time, you have become its target and victim."
- John O'Donohue
