In LA, there is always time to play! Whether in the sunshine or the rain, this beautiful city is packed with so much color, excitement, and people that Eric knew painting Los Angeles would be a challenge worthwhile. After all, it is the biggest city if you’re counting how much land it occupies. But LA is known for being called the “city of angels” or a “dream city” where dreams can come true for many people here. See if you can find the not-so-traditional ‘angel’ in the painting.
