June 29, 2010
Working on a big rodeo issue for the fall. Have a great story on the legendary Casey Tibbs by Stuart Rosebrook. Going to be sweet.

My good friend Shay Maxwell has developed an online faro casino. Check it out right here.

We are starting to get the big clouds now. Was looking for some sketches in my studio and found this from last summer:

Also, found this canyon sketch that has some nice attributes:

Did this almost two years ago. This was when I was closing in on the 10,000 bad drawings quest. If I learned one thing from that exercise it is that the looser you paint, the better the chances are you'll eventually hit on something that works. I'm much more likely to bail into a study because of this daily regimen.

Gee, I wonder if ol' Kettering has anything to say about this?

"Virtually nothing comes out right the first time. Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. The only time you don't want to fail is the last time you try something. . .one fails forward toward success."
—Charles F. Kettering
