We made it! After 8 weeks on the road we had our show in Los Angeles, displaying 32 paintings and 80-some photographs from the trip (although we shot about 6,000). We also got a lot of footage with our Flipcams and will be compiling it into a documentary over the next 6 months. Now is the time to finish up paintings and drawings and make prints in Brooklyn. Thank you so much to everyone that helped us make it! There's much to digest and pour out into the paintings over the coming months.
Our goal is to get everyone their artwork before the new year. Many of the paintings and drawings are finished, but we have yet to make the prints. Jackson's friend, Waylon, will be granting us access to his studio/printshop to make these. The documentary will probably take the longest amount of time, but we will keep you updated on how it's going. Keep a look-out for requests of where to send items.

Also, I am taking requests for paintings now. It will be our decision of what we will be sending to people but we welcome any imput, and will consider your request for a specific piece. To see my finished paintings from the trip go to: www.ericdiehlpaintings.com
More will be added in the coming weeks, but enjoy these pieces for now!
