God, I love that Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. I have never gone in there when I did not end up having a ball.

Haven't been there for awhile though. I was not familiar with these Paschke works from there or elsewhere.

Cool. Thanks, kid.

Hey Senor Steve, these are great huh? They are part of my daily posts for the month of June which is the official month of the accordion!

I never thought I'd see a portrait of Marilyn playing the accordion. It's amazing that this artwork was done over 30 years ago!

Mr.A Stagg helped me find these paintings.

Malcolm...don't they seem outstandingly current? It's the way he painted them like digital and the colours I think. Plus they seem photoshopped together or something. I'm glad you got to see these!
