I'm planning to publish my first, "Some of My Best Friends Are Colored" AllMerican Coloring Book on King Day, 2017. I'm working on portraits right now, even as I blog. So, I'll use this blog to post pieces of my progress. But, for those of you who just can't wait, I'm also posting some of the paintings I've done over the years in my "Chicago Fer Real" and my "Down In Uptown Series". And, if you ask me nicely, I might even unwrap one or two of my "ORIGINAALS Specials".
