This print edition is based on an original gouache on paper painting that Robert completed in 1987. The following quote explains the origins of the composition.
“One day I had to drive into Vancouver on one of my delivery trips. As I was making my rounds to the galleries, feeling high about completing my work, I spoke to many people. Listening, I realized everyone was complaining about something or other. I started feeling weighted down by what I was hearing. On my way home, I thought it would be neat to have a place where people can complain without burdening other people. Thus this painting.”
