Hey Joe, where you going with that Smith art in your hand ? ! ?


Rubicon, 41″ x 41′

Hanging art is an art, and Joe Vecchio done dood it good with his Smith family collection.

He and his gal are moving to Las Vegas, so we went over to fotograf my art he hadn’t packed yet. I haven’t seen them in maybe 20 years, and Lady K never has.

In the late-1990s, Joe and his brother Jim bought a bunch of pieces of mine, sometimes while I was still working on them on the floor (I work flat), and I haven’t seen most of them since.

So here’s one of Mother Smith’s and 16 of mine still hanging in his living room at what he calls Spahn Ranch East. Most the art is from the late 1990s.
