BOYLE HEIGHTS — If 15-year-old Isabel Peinado were to be asked to write an essay on what she did this summer, she could easily start it with “I painted my first public mural in Boyle Heights.”
In fact, the 10th grader at the Los Angeles County High School of the Arts in El Sereno spent about 600 hours –from late June to early August– painting 16 images of inspirational women on the side wall of Ray & Roy’s Market, on the corner of 4th and Camulos Streets.
“This is her 66th day,” her mother Judith Pulido said Saturday. “She’s been here seven days a week. She only took two days off [to go to the beach this summer].”
