Three painted brick balcony windows arranged side by side at the top of a building wall. On each window there are flowers on the edge. An elderly couple looks out the first window, a mother, father and son look out the second, and a mother and son are seen watering the plants in the last window.

Second Stories

Completed: 2014

This mural is meant to look back on a time where many families would live on the second level of the building within their own business. This is less common now due to the emergence of the suburbs, yet mixed use buildings are reappearing due to urban densities in certain areas. The mural faces a parking lot, with high windows, painted as if the figures are on looking down from their homes on the second story of the building.
