Relaxing in my brother and sister in laws neighborhood in Los Angeles. Silverlake is a community of classic, midcentury modern homes. Though part of the greater L.A. metropolis, this community and its' neighbors (Los Feliz, Sunset Junction) have a distinct village vibe. Fans of Laurel and Hardy's "Music Box" should know that it was filmed on steps in this small community. This painting was my attempt at capturing those classic California palms.
