So I had an amazing trip to California, drove the Pacific Coast Highway from San Diego to San Francisco and of course made stops in all the places I have wanted to see and spent a couple of days in each. Anyway this journey was not only to see California, but to see if this is where I would like to relocate myself, and yes its definitley on the top of the list. I also traveled to Chicago to visit family and get a feel for the area again although it’s the same as I remembered it 6 or 7 years ago, and it’s still my second home, so of course Chicago is on my list for relocation. While staying in Chicago my cousin and I made a trip up to Milwaukee for the Melvins 30th Anniversary tour, and mainly because Mudhoney was going to be playing with them, and if you don’t know, you know now, I am a HUGE Mudhoney fan. I like the Melvins, but Mudhoney, man, they are insanely good, and their set was amazing, Mark Arm’s voice has not changed at all, still got the chops!

Now that I have been back from that long month of traveling I have been working on new paintings and continuing my Female Protagonists in Film series. The newest paintings i have done are two 5″x5″, called Me + Gwen Stefani and Me + Debbie Harry. Also, I made the decision to go completely organic with my food, after a long time of knowing how bad non-organic food is for your body I have decided to bite the bullet and just pay extra for the food that’s not genetically altered with hormones and pesticides.

Also while in Milwaukee, I went to their art museum which is FANTASTIC, they have the best and largest Contemporary Art Collection I have ever seen in a museum, its was great, and when I say Contemporary I mean work made after 2000. They had an exhibit called 30 Americans which showcased the work of African-Americans, and OMG it was breathtaking. A bunch of Nice Cave’s work was there and he’s amazing, and finally I got to see one of my absolute favorite painters work in the flesh for the first time, Kahinde Wiley. They were godly, perfect, just absolutely unbelievable, and the best part is, it’s not as photo realistic as we think, and I appreciate that in an artist. He captures the sense of reality without losing the brushstrokes, and his wallpaper is probably the most realistic and detailed part of his work and that’s what brings these works to life. He’s the bomb. They had three large works of his, although everything he does is large! I was very pleased with that museum, they do a great job not only on special exhibits, but the permanent ones too. Same goes for Art Institute of Chicago, their Fashion and Impressionism exhibit was gorgeous, they had garments from that time period to accompany many great works, including early Monet’s are which before the age of impressionism really took power, meaning they are done in realism, and they are beautiful.
