October 16, 2006 Bonus Bonus Blog
Went home for lunch and heated up some spagetti. Had an apple and butterscotch pudding. Sat out by the pool and perused the English Esquire (Bob Brink always brings me his copy). Went into the studio and tweaked a landscape called "Bisti Badlands." I believe "bisti" is Navajo for "bad." So it would be Bad Badlands (really Bad!).

I also worked on "Al Sieber's Regret," but it still needs a tweak or two.

My good friend Johnny Weinkauf asked me if I still had the Charlie Russell parody, "The Actual Outcome of A Bronc to Breakfast"? I looked around this morning and found it. I did this painting twice (not unlike Charlie himself, who must have painted variations of this theme at least four times, that I know of). The first version was done in the late 1970s for The Razz Revue, a humor magazine created by Dan Harshberger and Skinny Little White Ass. The second version was created for a parody I did on the Cowboy Artists of America's annual showing in Phoenix in 1984. This one ran that year in New Times and it is signed Russ L. Remington. Get it? Ha. I had to shoot it through glass. Hope you can make it out:
