jesus saves

sunday is a fun-day of religious bombardment (in the best way) in l.a.
-8:30 in the morning every sunday we pass this guy at the gas station corner on silverlake
-found in an alley behind wilshire and la brea. my son says it's a mural of a saint...
because of the halo.
-a garage full of stacked boxes of tall glass candles that had been burned and this floral frame could be for ceremonial purposes? er, uhhh maybe just restaurant d├ęcor, but still very cool!
-i was taking a photo of these gorgeous yoruba hand beaded african chairs that i want at mix furniture and buddah suddenly popped in the pic!
(check out the beadwork close-up!)
-the way home on the 10 fwy this rastafarian red, gold and green truck barreled past us in a rush to go somewhere ...hmmm... i wonder what's inside?

Great post! I'm feeling all spiritual now. Those beaded chairs are amazing. LOVE Nathaniel Russell's work. We have a fantastic Jesus Man here too. His home and bicycle are completely decked out with empty hand-painted pizza cartons.

He's great! Tony took a photo of me and him (and his painted shopping trolley!) about ten years ago. Will try to find it...
