MIA

6x6
oil on panel

so this is Mia...for a friend and gone to heaven now..i've been working on three pieces to enter in the Randy Higbee show..i'll post them soon.. still reveling in our trip to chicago with mike and judy..saw the first world series game in wrigley field since 1945.. the year i was born!!!!..doesn't matter that they lost.. well it does.. but just being there was so special..a few facts:..45,000 inside the stadium with some paying $1500 for standing room only...300,000 outside in wrigleyville..shoulder to shoulder no doubt!!...$250 cover charge to get in bars like cubby bear..$500 for a table once you get inside but we understand that includes all you can drink!.. (whoa!..lots of drunks..and we ran into a bunch of them on our way out!!!)..took us an hour to find a ride back to the ritz carlton because they lied about the cab situation and we couldn't figure out UBER..walked through an interesting area where they were celebrating halloween in a BIG way!!..we saw abandoned wigs in the street.. or maybe they blew off..it was a happening night for sure!!!..and now the cubbies are down 3-1..i'm thinking we may be winning tonight... stay tuned...
