paintings / Ego's Deck Dream

From 2012 to 2017, Ego had a great view of the Manhattan skyline. Every day, she could just peer out the window and see

This is Ego. That is her deck.

In 2016, my roommates and I moved from our old, East Village apartment to a new Greenpoint apartment converted from an old parochial school because Ego couldn’t walk up six flights anymore.

In a new life of luxury, Ego now had an elevator, more room to run around, and a private deck. Everything except for the view.

So I drew what she could have been dreaming of if she could have seen what we saw.

These are Ego’s deck dreams.
