(click on the stage curtain)
just don’t steal from me
Special thanks to Tash over at Palos Verdes Daily photo for hosting this event
To Karin at Altadena Hiker for her “heroic gesture” in promoting this event
Lastly, Keith over at Monrovia’s Gem City Blog for providing a link to the work in the upper right hand corner of his blog
I like the quote and the punch line!
Thanks for unveiling the works of these 2 young fine artists. They obviously have great potential. Congrats!
(I don’t steal…just borrow.)
Behind the red curtain. Nice work. The images look great, the cell tower disguised as a palm looks like it could be a photograph. They all do, but the cell tower is very convincing. Will they let you paint the little black boxes to blend in? I assume they must be lights of some sort. The ocean is lovely too. Excellent quote.
Beautiful mural, love how vivid & intense it is–& love the Jarmusch quote–oh yes, i’ll be stealing from you somewhere down the road I’m sure…your character is too tempting…
Very creative, I understand now why the nozzle had to be cut lenghtwise. So, did you 2 young fine artists with obvious great potential envision and design the steel stucture on top of the sign or did that spot exist already, just waiting for some creative types to fill it with a perfect idea?
This looks fantastic! Mazel tov and thanks for unveiling. (And for adding the photo of the mosaic. I love the mosaic.) Wonderful work –and quote.
I just came from Tash’s post and I’m STOKED! I like the mural in every way, the colors especially speak to me. Tell Mr V I’m impressed. Is he impressionable???
PS In the end, I got the chairs I thought I had lost out on. Pictures to follow.
Congratulations Liz and Vic. This mural has everything — drama, color, adventure, heroics, hounds. Can’t wait to see it in person.
I’ll slap something up on my site so I can link to you also. (And steal some of your thunder.)
Very exciting!!!! It took me a few minutes, but I found the horse!!
congratulations! The piece(s) look great….beautiful.
I meant to ask you about the Jarmusch quote. What about the drama with Noli Novak and Jose Maria Cano?
Somehow, without a different context (like Warhol supplied in his soup cans, etc) and the only discernible difference is using a different medium, it seems kinda sleazy to me. I mean, is bigger really better?
It only gets better as you meditate on the mural.
Like some songs, I’m trying to translate the secret messages within.
The mural is just a wonder. Bravo bravo bravo!
What a wonderful piece…CONGRATS.
Where does the time go.
Eddie and I are still living in Sun Valley.
I am working way too hard building the
TV / Movie Sets.
Don’t see much new Art and making even Less.
Working full time to Live, is boring.
You 2 are Blessed.
Good Job keep up the Good Work.
live, love and maintain…
CONGRATULATIONS YOU GUYS !!!!!
GOT MY FINGERS CROSSED FOR YOUR FINAL APPROVAL . . . .*
Love it!!!! Size?
PA, (off topic): R U talkin about the long-standing TwoHeys on the San Marino/Alhambra border?? Believe It or Not, I’ve always wanted to ck it out but haven’t found the motivation within to go in. I got your comment of complaint.
Well, cheese on a burger is just so, so wrong! Just ask my editor, KB.
When you got In N Out next door for a burger at $1,79 why 2Heys? That reminds me. I can see InO interested in a mural.
That Dog is alive. I want him……..:)
wow fabulous !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations on an amazing project. Beautiful, thoughtful, powerful… it’s just wonderful.
Thanks for the thanks and opportunity to bask in your limelight. The mural is amazing and I can’t wait to see the mosaic in person.
Here are some more comments on your work from PVDP:

It’s really something, such vivid work by L & V! I’d have recognized it anywhere, having seen a sneak peek of bits of it. Great shot, too! Can’t wait to see it in person.

I absolutely love this mural. Beautiful! That’s also a truly great photo of it, Tash.

I want to see it in person. Very captivating!

Their work is spectacular and I’m so glad you could show it to us.

Wow, what a fabulous piece! You do this all the time?
You know, a blogger mate of mine in Austrailia, a city planner, wrote of the practice and study of survey to judge the effect of the visual cityscape on urban inhabitants.
I truly believe in the importance of the visual environment:
a mural in my hometown, not nearly as refined as yours, changes the entire mood of an otherwise drab existence for acres around it.
Such a meaningful theme you have chosen. Kudos to you for caring enough about your neighborhood to make such a rock solid committment; how very compassionate!
beautiful work! congrats!
Absolutely beautiful and fantastic mural. So much talent. Of course, I could say similar about all your art that I’ve seen so far. Magnificent!
It deserves a crowd. A big crowd.

Why did I see this coming?!

I love PA’s work. My dream is to have her design something for the proposed Arroyo Food Co-op.

beautiful. Especially that determined dalmatian.

You have some amazing friends, KB. I have to thank you for being the link to Liz’s blog which I visit regularly. I’m so impressed with the mural and the mosaics. They’re simply gorgeous.

As was the case in serious music, I was unschooled in art (serious or otherwise), by my choice. To satisfy a liberal arts requirement, I took “Spots and Dots” because it was rumored to be easy. I got yet another C.
So seeing the sheer scale of some art has been part of my self-education.
About half a football field, Diego Rivera’s mural depicting auto workers at the Detroit Institute of Art is my latest case in point. You could study it for a lifetime. In Simon Schama’s series on PBS, the sheer size of some (most?) of Rothko’s rectangles–who knew?
Oh yes, the David. That counts, I guess.
October 22, 2009 4:17 PM
I knew CP and KM would be a-liking this.
Susan, that is a great idea
PJ, yup, great people to know. You can click on any link to the right on my blogroll and never be disappointed.
Banjo, left you a tune.
October 22, 2009 4:57 PM
I saw Tash’s post today and think this is amazing. I will follow the links to see more. Bravo to the artists for their fine work and of course to our heroes for all they do for all of us.
October 22, 2009 6:24 PM
OH wait, I read too fast. So LIZ is our very own PA?? How marvelous. Ain’t bloggin’ grand!
October 22, 2009 6:26 PM
It’s really terrific, glorious even.

Grand Illusion. I particularly like the rocky hillside.

Oh, how grand! The spotty-dog is my favourite part. PA and Victor’s work is wonderful ~ I so admire artists who can see the big picture and work on such a large scale.
October 23, 2009 1:54 AM
This is so impressive and cool. I’m so glad you posted about it.
October 23, 2009 9:49 AM
WOw, wow and WOW!
This is spectacular.
October 23, 2009 10:01 AM
What a wonderful tribute. Muralists amaze me, how they’re able to bring together all the small details to produce amazing works of art on a grand scale. There must be a life analogy in there somewhere…
October 23, 2009 10:41 AM
Great (gigantic) art!
I can see the black box there, very fascinating.
I think you should consult Albert about that!
October 23, 2009 11:08 AM
Thanks for the plug. Very kind of you
