“This one took a couple of days. We painted a layer on it first, but we lost a lot of the texture from the rocks. They get a lot of grafitti, you know? So they decided to put a mural here. It’s a street scene from Florence. Well, it’s an impression of a street scene.

I take my time. I’m retired so I don’t work as fast as I used to. I’ve been doing these murals for years. I’ve got another one down the street on the red brick building. It’s a scene from France at night–well, an impression of one.” Bob, painting a mural on the brick parking lot divider at Osteria De Medici, along Kensington Road and 10th Street NW.
