Artist Pat Kilby is an oil painter.
“And I like to work in bright colors and kind of quirky perspective, little bit cartoonish I guess some people say,” says Kilby.
And he often would drive home on Fifth Street in downtown Boise and see the plain, white traffic box that controls the streetlight.
“I would pass the Veltex building. And it occurred to me one day that that box had to be a gas pump,” Kilby says.
