Man Uses Eye-Popping 2D Art to Propose to Girlfriend

YouTube/Alexa Meade(SAN FRANCISCO) -- This proposal wasn’t life imitating art, but rather life becoming art.

Dan Levine came up with the perfect plan to capture his romantic, eye-popping proposal to longtime girlfriend Cristina Cordova on Sunday. He enlisted the help of a high school friend, artist Alexa Meade, who uses acrylic paint to transform her muses into what appears to be 2D pieces of art.

“A few months ago, he contacted me and asked if I could paint both him and his girlfriend,” Meade told ABC News of the exciting endeavor. “He asked if he could propose to her through that, and I was like, ‘Yes, oh my God, that’s amazing.’ I was so excited."

As they were roaming the Mission District neighborhood of San Francisco covered in acrylic paint, the lovebirds obviously started attracting quite the crowd.

“It was cool because it became somewhat of a spectacle,” said Meade. “Random people would see us walking down the street and wander with us from location to location. It was such a curious thing.”

At the end of a long day shooting, the paint-covered couple paused for a few minutes in front of a wall that read, “NEW MURAL SOON.” Meade instructed Cordova to stand while Levine remained on bended knee.

Cordova giggled while saying, “I knew you were going to do it,” in the video capturing the adorable moment. The two have been dating for six and half years.

“They’re a lovely couple and they’re so in love,” said Meade. “If I can create art to celebrate that love, to commemorate one of the biggest moments in their lives, that’s amazing. It was really fun.”

Meade said it was absolutely a highlight of her career.

“I can create the art but the rest is up to them,” she said of her newly engaged friends.

California anticipates much-needed rain this week after catastrophic wildfires

California anticipates much-needed rain this week after catastrophic wildfiresGoogle Earth(NEW YORK) -- Ravaged by a slew of deadly wildfires in recent days, northern California is set to get a bit of relief this week in the form of rain.

A storm system is expected to move over the Pacific Northwest later this week and the trailing cold front will most likely bring some much-needed rain to northern California between Thursday and Friday, according to ABC meteorologists.

"It will rain a bit but not enough to fully douse the blazes," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Ken Clark said in a statement Tuesday. "The biggest advantage to firefighters will be the increase in humidity and lower temperatures."

Massive wildfires have charred more than 245,000 acres of land statewide in the past week, killing at least 41 people and destroying thousands of homes, according to authorities.

Firefighters were battling about a dozen wildfires as of late Tuesday evening, although most of them were more than halfway contained.

“The weather today will be warm with low humidity, which will continue to challenge firefighters, but only light winds are forecast,” CalFire said in a statement on Tuesday. “A chance of precipitation is expected to arrive later in the week, bringing relief from the dry conditions.”

The northern parts of the Golden State, which has bared the brunt of the fire damage, is forecast to see an influx of cloudy, cooler and wetter weather later in the week, according to AccuWeather.

However, a return of dry air, heat and areas of gusty winds could once again raise the wildfire danger early next week, meteorologists said.

Separately, a band of moisture, referred to as Atmospheric River by weather experts, is currently stretching between Asia and North America. It’s expected to bring several storm systems into many parts of the Pacific Northwest through the rest of the week.

The first of these storms have already hit the Pacific Northwest with wind gusts of between 40 and 74 mph.

A number of wind warnings and flood watches are in effect in the western and northern parts of the U.S. ahead of the storm.
