Liquor Stores & Laundromats


I was having a conversation with a buddy today and he pointed out a connection with one of my favorite rap groups, Jurassic 5 and my leanings to certain subjects in my paintings. Of all my urban themes in my paintings, the spaces that I am most interested in are laundromats and liquor stores, specifically. I don't fully understand why to this day, as I have been painting these sceneries for about 11 years. The point of this trivial post is merely that Jurassic 5's song 'Remember His Name' includes the following line recited by Zaakir:

'Oh man, where have I seen this brother before, man Well it was either at the liquor store or laundromat. Seems like everybody I know know dude, but can't nobody remember his damn name.'

That's all, just a tiny observation. Sorry, I don't have any completed paintings to post...

I'm so glad I found your blog; your laundromats are fabulous as are your garage interiors.
