He just couldn’t wait to paint Las Vegas.
British artist Glyn Macey was scheduled to visit the Strip’s iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign Friday, but he moved up the painting session to Thursday afternoon.
He’ll be capturing the welcome sign on canvas as part of his cross-country USA 4 UNICEF tour, which began May 5 in Asbury Park, N.J.
When his nationwide trek ends next week in Los Angeles, Macey will have covered 3,000 miles and visited 30 cities to paint 100 original studies, to be auctioned in support of UNICEF, the United Nations children’s organization.
