Juniper and Ivy shows the former Helix Wholesale building in the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego. Once a dilapidated building, with a crumbling facade, the building has been renovated, and expanded, to create one of the city's trendiest restaurants; Juniper and Ivy. The name of the painting is the same as the name of the restaurant (and also the name of the intersection). The old Helix Wholesale building is barely recognizable with the new addition. I chose to paint this building because of the complex patterns of the crumbling brick and paint, and the graffiti on the facade.
