City of Palm Desert
The City of Palm Desert commissioned me to paint two skyscapes on adjacent traffic signal boxes as part of their beautification project. I created two related but not contiguous skyscapes in acrylic paint on the boxes. It was an interesting project in that I was thwarted by outside influences – building dust from construction adjacent to my project ran late, I was working over the holidays, but wasn’t actually allowed to paint on any holiday days, and some winter weather on days when I was allowed to paint! The project ran over the end of the calendar year, incurring the need for a new permit!
