The intersection of two backstreets in Newtown is a smeary mess of white paint, but walk around it and you will find the right angle to decipher the name â€˜Mariaâ€™. Close by, â€˜Jenâ€™ has written her name more neatly. What inspired Maria and Jen to leave their autographs here? Probably a tin of white paint found discarded nearby. There is no sign of the paint can now, but Â the offending â€˜paintbrushesâ€™ are still on display â€“ branches nicked from a shrub in someoneâ€™s garden, defiantly attached to a light pole on the corner.
