I’ve lived in this neighborhood for the better part of my life, and I came home to visit, and for the first time, I actually noticed the makeup of the city. It’s all block after block of pretty much the same style house.
I was painting this background [of one painting], and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it. I kept putting white over [the houses] and repainting it and then I wouldn’t like it, so I’d paint white over it again. And every time I’d paint over it, the house was still showing through.
