The Mar Vista Apts

24"x16" oil on canvas Here is another in my series of six apartment building paintings. I do not hide that I take (extreme) artistic license in my representation of these buildings. Most of the actual buildings have been modified over the years—some to the point of being absolutely butchered. That being typed, this is the painting that is closest to how the building still looks to this day. Over the years, some pretty hideous metal awnings were added and a large magnolia grandiflora tree has grown up in front of it. So, I cut down the tree, removed the awnings and voila!, you have a wonderful building on two stilts the relative width of toothpicks.
