June 14, 2010
We've had a couple very nice days. It was actually cool on Saturday. Amazing. Still, I hooked up the misters for the chickens today. Supposed to climb up to over 100 again. It's still very dry and nice though.

Went home for lunch and celebrated finishing the big Digging Up Billy the Kid painting by cleansing my palate. Whipped out a scene of Mickey Free climbing a darkened ridge with the Valley of Fire behind him:

Some nice effects here, with the Kid muted in detail because we're looking down into some pretty bright hot spots, which softens his silhouette. Mick's mule Tu, is a sure footed beast and he takes the steep ridge in stride, even though his eyebrows have been singed from an earlier jump through those very flames below.

Feel revitalized about Mickey. Want to get back on the story. Gee, I wonder what ol' Ernest has to say about that effort?

"All good books have one thing in common—they are truer than if they had really happened."
—Ernest Hemingway
