A few hours to kill

Finished up some somewhat mundane web work this morning and I had a few hours to kill. It was wet and cloudy, but I thought what the hell? Might as well go paint. I was talking to the homie Skept on the phone as I pulled up to the wall, together we came up with a plan. I was going to paint a simple 2 color fill and then a nice contrasting outline, it was suppose to be a very minimal color scheme. I was going to go Painters touch dark blue and royal on the fill with a key lime outline. Well the dark blue and keylime cans were both shot, full with no paint coming out. So the plan was shot. So cold and, a little wet, and a plan that did not work out and it made for a not so inspired piece.

and also a new bike I built…
