Howdy peeps! I have decided to go back to doing my one painting a day thing. Doing the one painting a week wasn't working for me.
For some reason it is freeing having to come up with something new every day. Maybe because there is no time to think too much or to self censor and it appeals to my inner ADD. So please go to freedomwig on June 1st to see what's going down. Heck yes.
This art you see here is for a lovely job I did for the July issue of Bon Appetit magazine. Excellent people to work with!

Hey back home after a fabulous two weeks in Pittsburgh visiting my family with a side trip to Chicago for the show at DVA Gallery. Here is a picture of all of us artsy farts at a bar called Proust right next to the gallery.
We ate spaeztel and weird sour meatballs and I drank skunked wine from a dirty glass. I am so hardcore, man. Enjoy the weener plate picture, please. There were some sloshed frat and sorority types drinking brew from a very large glass boot across the room providing us with some lovely free entertainment. I feel that Chicago is a boozy place.
Speaking of brew, my brother's beer won a Silver Medal at the World Cup of Beer (check out category #74). This is a very cool thing. If you ever get a chance to drink any beer from Penn Brewery, do it cause it is real good. The Pilsner is my favorite. My brother is the Head Brewer over there. I wish they sold the beer in Pasadena. It is pretty much the only beer I drink. Here is a picture of the winning beer.
Backtracking. I wanted to go to the Carnegie International when I was in Pittsburgh but didn't get a chance. It looks groovy-- Doug Aitken, Barry McGee among others have stuff in it. I'll see it when I go back to the 'burgh in August. Also when I was in Chicago I saw the Karen Kilimnik show at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Her art rocks my world (I am embarrassed to use that phrase but I mean it). I got a little choked up when I saw it.
OK talk to you yinzers later.

Howdy people. I decided to extend my Spring Cleaning sale on freedomwig.com until May 31. Some people emailed me asking to extend it so I am gonna do it! I'll update the website and my one-a-weeks when I get back to Cally next week.
