Large painting Dedication to the Dynamic Rockers at 5 Pointz

A phone call that lead into a conversation about a possible painting, let me so excited and also so nervous!

Marie Cecile Flageul who works with Meres at 5 Pointz, gave me such  phone call on a Thursday afternoon asking for a surprise painting for the father and son a bboy group called The Dynamic Rockers.

I was in a state of panic since  didn't have the budget to get the work completed on time. Thursday turned into Friday. At this point I began to doubt the potential of me eve making the art piece. No materials no money. I don't like asking people for help, and which let me to be a bit anxious.

I then remembered that in the Bronx where I have a mini space to paint, I had safely storage a few art supplies, so I took a trip up there, and wa-la, everything I needed was there. I was so thrilled, I didn't know what to do with myself, I saw a stack of stretcher bars 4 feet X 5 Feet, and raw canvas.  was soooo darn lucky !!!!

Hope you like the art process
