One Tough Cookie vs. Hoe Down

November 2, 2011

Finally chilly out (low sixties). Had to laugh at the quote from the guy at the National Weather Service back on September 1: "People keep asking me when it is going to cool off, and the flippin' answer is Halloween."

True that.

Worked this morning on a tighter study for my Arizona Centennial painting subject: "Not So Gentle Tamers." Did this one this morning.

Note the rattlesnake head at the bottom. Will do a tighter version on the final. Like this more severe Victorian dress and attitude. Alternate titles: "One Tough Cookie" and "Hoe Down."

Having spent several days in Tombstone, Doc Holliday has been on my mind lately and this quote applies doubly to him:

"The man who has ceased to fear has ceased to care."
—Francis Herbert Bradley
