Here is an article from the local paper about the return of the Joey painting to Big Al's. Apparently, the culprit was known to some of the folks at Big Al's and they contacted him. A short time later, the painting ended up in a trash bag behind a church. Does any one else see parallels between this story and this years Pulitzer Prize winner "the Goldfinch"? Did Joey bring this guy some peace to his otherwise crazy world? We will never know. Hopefully this publicity will help the artist sell the painting, or maybe the whole series!!
