Rooftop Legends :

What a great experience.... This is my second time working on a large mural by myself with a great help from my son, who really contributed a lot on this process. Felt bit nerve racking during the first week of working on it, since I only had but ounce of paints, ( acrylic painter paint, not HOUSE paints),  as these pros schooled me on. Such legends on these tops where painting like second nature, no hesitation, no looking back, as I looked at them,and  all I can saw is WOW!!!

I bow to those that struggle and have learned a lot from the streets and have gained nothing but more wisdom. It was a great great privileged to have been a part of this, and a BIG UP to Trust Your Struggle crew: Ben BORISH Rojas, CeCe, Erin, Miguel Bouncer. Cern and other in whom I am in awe to see..

( *** P.S. because of the bare minimal paint supply, 3 colors, I was able to spread it like an eagle on to this wall, to the best of my abilities. The out come became so abstract. :) Enjoy my dearest universal spirits! )
