June 30, 2007 Bonus Blog
Got the tractor tire down at 23rd Ave. and Deer Valley ($13 cash), met Dave Daiss for lunch at Tonto Bar & Grill at Rancho Manana. We both had half a cobb and iced tea ($25 biz account). Talked quite a bit about Empire Ranch down by Sonoita and how to preserve it.

Went home and unloaded the tractor tire, whipped out a series of sketches on He Who Straddled Two Different Worlds. This is a theme I have painted before, but I have some better reference this time:

Here's Levi Miles posing for the Straddling painting I want to do. Good rocks and angle (taken at San Carlos), have a better image but I'm not going to share it just yet. Wanted to convey the basic idea.

Last week, as I approached Mogollon Canyon it looked like rain (below). Did get some sprinkles and it was much cooler than the Valley, but then anything would be. Love those mountains:

In the morning it was in the forties and I took this photo of William Antrim's outhouse (Billy the Kid's step-father lived next door to the property that Lew and Tera Jones built on). This is Lew and Tera's custom made mining cabin next door (right). Really a cool little place. I am so jealous. I'd love to have a getaway place like this:
