Below is a small watercolor from a photo I took in Spain. Still working on patience when using watercolor. It’s difficult to wait for layers and sections to dry before proceeding. My entry to Sunday Sketches at Blue Chair Diary blog.
Another week, another museum and stair walk.
This week I visited The Japanese American Museum. They had a beautiful exhibit of photographs taken by Japanese Americans in the 1920’s and ’30’s. The glare on the glass made it impossible to take good pictures. This one, below, was the only one that came out clear.
A smaller exhibit at the same museum was an advanced display of origami. Two examples.
Today’s stair walk was in the hills of an area called Echo Park. The streets themselves have to be some of the steepest in southern California.
Some artwork up high…
and below in the sidewalk.
Each house in these older areas is unique. No two are the same, unlike the many tracts of houses in the LA suburbs.
I think graffiti must be worldwide. I saw some even in tiny Spanish towns. It is spread all throughout LA. from downtown to suburbia. A creative and courteous sign requesting people to refrain.
Happy weekend to all.
