This painting is a shout out to the 'hoods in Cleveland. I really do get so tired of hearing people talk about the city with such negativity. Problems? Yup. Every city has them. Post- industrial economic decline? There's that.
I'm not such a pollyanna to believe that people aren't part of/ most of the problem. But I do believe that human beings are a strange mix of brokenness and beauty, and when we cease to seek and see the beauty, then we have a REAL problem.
