The sculpture of a giant black Labrador outside the Orange County Museum of Art looks friendly, nose to the sky and tail up. But with a hind leg cocked, "Bad Dog" is designed to spray gallons of yellow paint through a powerful gear pump onto the museum building. "We'll see how long it lasts. I don't think it's such a big deal, but you never know how people will react," said Richard Jackson, the 73-year-old artist behind the dog. "Sometimes people feel they should protect their children from such things, then the kids go home and watch 'South Park.'" Jackson made "Bad Dog" for his first museum retrospective, opening in Orange County on Sunday.

If you like paint, you'll like "Richard Jackson: Ain't Painting a Pain," the artist's 40-year retrospective exhibition at the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach. It's awash in the stuff. Thick, brightly colored paint oozes like mortar from between thousands of canvases stacked like bricks into a kind of room-size temple, and it's smeared in rainbows that unfurl across white walls. It's shot from a pellet gun at a big drawing and out of the rear ends of carousel animals toward spinning canvases and sculptures on surrounding walls.

The subject of a one-man show at the Rosamund Felsen Gallery through Dec.

The California health official who threatened to issue a health advisory unless bananas treated with an acutely toxic pesticide were removed from the market said Thursday that the use of the chemical constituted "an accident waiting to happen."

Little Richard says he'd like Michael Jackson to play him in the movies. Eddie Murphy, he says, isn't good-looking enough. The 57-year-old piano-pounding rock 'n' roller will be in Atlantic City on Saturday for a one-time appearance at Trump Taj Mahal. He said he is looking for a record deal and negotiating to create a syndicated variety show. He is also planning an autobiographical movie. "I want to see Michael Jackson as me," he said.
