The Making of the Bleeding Heart Mural

I loved painting in this alley. All day long people of different races and beliefs would walk by on their way to somewhere. Some, like the guy in this video, would just keep on walking while others would stop to talk and and ask me questions. It was a 100 degrees and the barber shop on the other side of the wall I was painting offered me whatever I needed, water or just a place to rest. I wish it could be like this everywhere. Where the world keeps spinning, where we can all be covered in sunshine and everything will be all right. I know it’s not that simple. This is for all the bleeding hearts.
