But not today. I jumped out and felt the tractor beam pulling me right over to a box of records. And wouldn't you know it? There were a bunch of wonderful vinyl treasures. A few Coltrane, Art Tatum, others and several really cool, old Miles albums. I am liking Blue Haze especially.
So, here is a new Miles painting in honor of my great find today.
The Two Deaths of Miles Davis. Acrylic on Canvas
And while I am on the goodwill subject, listen to this. One day this woman told me that she found one of my paintings at the goodwill in Seattle. She ran into me at a show I was having at the Sunlight Cafe. It was a huge portrait of Erykah Badu I had done several versions of. I sold each of those paintings for probably $1000 or more and she got it for $30. Now that's what I'm talking about.
On the subject of selling art, this painting was just sold to Greg Neri. He is starting a JJW collection down in Tampa.
This painting, La Fille D'Afrique, will accompany John Coltrane and the Astral Vortex
