“Dirt Mulholland” painting

“Dirt Mulholland” “Dirt Mulholland”, 2007, acrylic on canvas, 12×9″

The famous Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles is a long, scenic road that snakes many miles through some of L.A.’s most beautiful hills.

However, it is not possible to drive its entire length. Part of it is unpaved and closed to traffic. It is possible to walk it, and that’s just what I did to get the photo that this painting is based on.

The unpaved stretch is called “dirt Mulholland” by the locals, while on maps it’s referred to as “Mulholland Drive (dirt)”. Either way, it’s a beautiful place to take a walk.

The painting is available unframed $280, or framed $330. It is wired and ready to hang. Framing is optional, the edges are finished.

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
