"The 'Lil Waiter' series is the same series as 'Lil Homies,' but I changed the title of the series. These paintings start out as candid snapshots of ordinary people doing ordinary things. I am attracted to mundane moments we all experience but pay no attention or resist. The objective of this work is to draw attention to people and moments that are overlooked." - Brett Amory
