Here's more of my daily whip out paintings, that I intend to unload in about ten days (shooting for Halloween). The method will be rather daring and different. First up is a recent study that is quite dramatic and yes, controversial:
Whipped Out #16, "The Cowboy Controversy"
This, of course, deals with the environmentalists vs. cowboys and ranchers being stewards of the land.
Went home for lunch and finished a study featuring a big sky. Been working on my blends and atmospheric effects.
Whipped Out #17, "The Edge of Darkness"
Here's a theme and a character I have been working on for at least ten years:
Whipped Out #18, "Mickey and his ass ride through the ash"
And here's a centennial flag painting I did while noodling ideas for our TV show Outrageous Arizona:
Whipped Out #19, "Arizona Centennial Flag"
And finally, a landscape:
Whipped Out #20, "Morning Buttes"
This was inspired by a trip back from Durango a year ago. I was driving west of Kayenta on the Navajo res as the sun was coming up and this distant set of buttes turned a pinkish purple. Dang close to the effect, if I do say so myself.
