      This is a main intersection near my home. The canyon created by the building is the real subject of this work. Some people complained about me painting in the power lines. I suggested that they think of them as the rigging on a ship. They are part of the environment we create and they represent a part of the structure of society.
      Frequently, young people who stopped to talk to me, wanted to talk about their own artistic careers. I think it was because I was near a coffee shop. I could only tell them that doing it, not thinking about it, was the key.
      "Work yourself into thinking. Don't think yourself into working."
      My girlfriend, Dorothy, posed for the blond woman on the left.
      Others in the painting are people that paused long enough for me to snag them.
