The Voice of Hi Yo Silver Is Dead

December 23, 2010

Under the weather. Got a sore throat and chills. Stayed home most of yesterday.

Speaking of weather, it rained most of last night. This is the big storm that flooded Cal yesterday. Soggy, with juicy clouds hanging off the tops of Skull Mesa.

In spite of my flu-type doldrums, I have been pushing paint around. Did this little study a couple days ago:

Lots of color in that mono chrome, no? Also did this one called "Ahead of the Column":

And, this little puppy, called "Red Rock Rider":

Actually poached this basic scene from a Taos Seven artist's painting.

A very familiar voice died yesterday. Fred Foy, 90, died at his home in Woburn Mass.

"A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty 'Hi-yo, Sliver!"
