nitty gritty los angeles

I was invited by a dj promoter to paint at a twice yearly event he helps put on called nitty gritty los angeles. It's a dance party from 10pm to 7am held in various locations and this year was in a huge warehouse under the 10 freeway. They had me painting out in the back by the food trucks where everyone came out to relax and cool off. I laid out a scene and then when around sketching people and putting them in the painting. They were all having a great time and digging the piece as it unfolded, it was a very toulouse lautrec evening! here's a little slice of that night. acrylic and glitter on canvas, 30 by 40
