“Junie was an artist by nature. When he was younger he painted everything he saw and what he saw was the beauty in every moment. When he looked at a broken bottle on the street, Junie didn’t see shards of glass that endangered passers-by and uglied the landscape, he saw little prisms that colorfully reflected the light all around them.Junie would paint the pieces with such tender interpretation that it left one to wonder why more bottles weren’t left to lie broken and unguarded on the street.The mundane was exalted to the reverential in Junie’s paintings; brick buildings swayed, a lot overgrown with grass became a mosaic and buses were portrayed as mobile festivals, its inhabitants mixing and churning in colorful collision. “
