Out of Sight, Out of Mind




Artwork Notes:

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t hide from a helicopter and duck for cover in the bushes by the train tracks twice on my way to get this view. Graffiti guys deal with this sort of thing all the time, plein air guys not so much. That was fun.

Sounds like its been an intense week for folks that live here and love and care for this coast. Another oil spill is just another example of how the cost of living our lives plays out in many ways.

Big thanks to my friends Guner, John, Mike, and Chris for all the Intel and access logistics.
