Urban Night, Down Town Vernon August 3, 2012

Another trip down to the darker side of L.A., I set up under the bridge carrying the Amtrak train overhead. A homless encampment near by. One can see a switch house, and the L.A. skyline in the distance. I was intrigued by the design of the pillars and beam in front of me. It resembled the symbols of Pi, or even a Shinto, or Tori Gate. All ideas of reference to add depth to the work. It didn't help that the air smelled of fumes from a near-by tannery.
