My eye is drawn to these old “billboards” — advertising signs painted on the walls of buildings. The ones painted on brick are especially appealing to me. They are a glimpse into the past, and they are disappearing as old buildings are torn down or the walls are painted over as old buildings are rehabbed. I think I see the word “casket” on this wall, but I can’t be sure.
I’d like to do a portrait of someone leaning up against this wall.
