Lightbox Expo 2022

On the final day of Lighbox Expo I painted the huge yellow letters out in front of the Pasadena Convention Center.

It stayed overcast all day, which meant the light on the surfaces of he letters was fairly constant.

Artists from all over the world and with all sorts of stories hung out as I painted. They asked good questions about brushes, paints (I'm using gouache), perspective, skyholes, and the adventure of painting on location.

One person asked "Have you ever been kicked out of a painting spot?" 

The answer is Yes! By a security guard, a harbormaster, and an angry nun in Tuscany.

Dear James,

I cannot believe you've kicked out of painting spot!
Savages! :D
My friends and I were also asked to leave the restaurant in which we were drawing,
I couldn't believe it. They even called the cops who actually came.
Don't know the real reason.
Surreal experience.
