When David Hockney first flew into L.A.
he was amazed to see that every home had it's own swimming pool and
this prompted him to paint the now famous series of pool paintings.
L.A. has always had its opulence and outrageous wealth and hand in
hand with that came it's fair share of crime. It is high-energy

most obvious draw is Hollywood and then along the coast the plush
and exclusive citadels of Beverly Hills and Malibu. The City of Los
Angeles, also known as L.A. or informally as the City of
Angels, is the second-largest city in the United States and the
seventh largest in the world in terms of population, and is
considered the largest metropolitan area in the world with an area
of 14,070 sq. miles. On
