Police in Florida say a graffiti artist who apparently ran out of paint midway through a spray-painted creation left a note to potential critics to explain the unfinished work.

Palm Bay police Officer Dan Fisher says the artist painted the words "ran out of purple" on the white concrete wall. The note was next to an incomplete bright purple piece that read "Solo."

Fisher says the artist would likely face a criminal mischief charge if he or she is apprehended. The damage was estimated at about $200.
