I was commissioned by the City of La Quinta to transform the large Traffic Signal Box on Fred Waring & Palm Royale, into a work of public art. The larger "Traffic Signal Box" needed a light color palette to avoid drawing heat to the metal box (thereby frying the computer inside.) The design for this smaller box just had to match. working around handles, doors, and light sensors. The second box has a golfer painted from each direction of the swing, His wife had him hold the swing pose then photographed him from front, rear and each side. I worked from the photographs to get the body from the right perspective. Directly across the street is a golf country club. The box has each side coordinated with the adjacent sides . The colors of the mountains, sky and those in the distant were matched by painting this on site Pain the sides and back were easier . Painting had to be done while the metal was still cool and traffic, at that time of the morning was almost non-existent for painting the front side.
