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?
- made friends with awesome artist nathaniel russell today.
his gospel above can be purchased here
if you don't know nathaniel russell's work you can see and buy his latest works over at mollusk surf shop.  the show runs until oct. 31 in san francisco
 and this ha haaaa!! heartwarming video was posted on his fb page
