Fullerton's Fun Farmer's Market at Downtown Plaza
There are many towns that have farmer's market days throughout So Cal, but this one is probably the most entertaining. Besides food, there is often a concert of local talent, a variety of kids programs and a beer garden which inspires a few individuals to be rather silly and...

Steamers: See where it gets steamy!
Serving as a spot for jazzy music and a place to grab late night grub, Steamers is a unique spot in downtown Fullerton, and for Orange County at large. This is a kind of place grown folks go- those in the 30-40 crowd usually, but anyone into jazz and a more quiet nighttime...

Our Lady of Hard Knocks
Part 1 of my big project last year: the Modern Day Saints Series. The master plan is to create a painting of each of my friends into modern versions of saints. I've got two male frinds in the works right now as Patron Saints of Afros and Anger/Destruction. This is Meghan, my good friend since first grade. She formerly used and quite abused drugs...I mean serious stuff here. We lost close touch for a few years while she was cleaning up her act. Now she's clean and loves to write, hence the notebook & ballpoint pen. The drugs set her back many years though. At least she's straight again. She rules.
This is called 'Our Lady of Hard Knocks'

Good luck painting
Miscellaneous: Fullerton is warmer than the coast of CA. It would be wise to bring a t-shirt and shorts in the summer, and a jacket for the night-time. Winter is never really all that cold either. This is a Good luck painting in oil. The book is The Catcher in the Rye. Symbols from around the world.
