Taco Bell Day and Night


'1604 S. La Brea Avenue' 12"x 11.5"

Sometimes I'll paint the same composition at different times of the day or night and see how a place can change more in minutes or hours than it does in years.


'1605 S. La Brea Avenue 12"x 11.5"

Since I like to title the paintings with the street addresses they depict, I just added a number to the address in this case since the location was the same. Titling paintings this way allows me to tell the viewer something specific and true about what the painting shows, but doesn't emotionally color it like soundtrack music.
