The most thrilling aspect of the project was the danger of it, the fact that I had absolutely no idea what I was coming in to paint was so exciting, the risk involved really interested me. The only thing I had to go on was black, white and red, the rest was totally improvised. The decision-making process that would normally happen in private was happening in front of the public and every mistake was there in the open, for the world to see, so there was great pressure to make every brush stroke count. that pressure informed my approach to the painted. The public also became part of the creative process with me, tapping on the glass, cheering me on, sometimes coming into the store to talk to me about what I was making. The support and encouragement from passers by was really heartening.
