February 16, 2009
Spent a good part of the weekend painting and working on art. Got a decent pencil sketch for the big oil painting of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett transferred to canvas. Also worked on sketches for a phenom that happens nightly, north of our house:

"Last light On Elephant Butte" is very angular and random looking, as little slivers of light catch the tips of buttes up on Elephant Butte just before twilight. Here's another study of the phenom:

I almost like the rough sketch better, but it's a sweet phenom and I intend to capture it eventually.

"He was a man—a big, inconsistent, brave man."
—W.E.B Du Bois, writing about Abraham Lincoln
