Went home for lunch and started a Burnside rifle shooter (see sketches from yesterday). Went up at noon and got my haircut at Bev's. Got all the latest neighborhood news: Paul, one of the oldtime Cave Creek barbers died of a heart attack, and Bev's cousin also passed away. She was cooking Mexican food for the memorial service this weekend. Plus there is a memorial service tomorrow for one of the founders of Page's Bookstore, which I'm going to attend.
Got back to my studio at about 12:40, had an apple and fed it to the chickens, then whipped out a pretty solid Burnside rifle shooter:
This is Edward Cross firing at Sylvester Mowry at Tubac on July 8, 1859. It's going to be part of a composite piece for a Arizona Republic True West Moment.
