My Mission Statement on Buses & Rail Cars Throughout Los Angeles

I will be signing my Metro ‘San Fernando’ poster

at the San Fernando Public Library next Tuesday, June 11th.
Stop by to get your free signed copy of my Metro poster:

Tuesday, June 11 at 10:30 AM

San Fernando Public Library

217 N Maclay Ave, San Fernando, CA 91340

A small section of the San Fernando Mission garden inspired me to paint My Mission Statement, the painting selected for the San Fernando Metro poster. The scene includes tiled roofs, exposed wood beams and an adobe wall, all typical architectural elements of Southern California. The archway, the main focus both visually and symbolically, invites the viewer to step through and explore.
The poster is currently on display on Metro buses and rail cars traveling throughout Los Angeles County.

I hope to see you in San Fernando!
