Billy Clanton Gets Plugged Big Time!

December 6, 2012

   And the Daily Whipouts continue. Did this first one at lunch yesterday. Built it from emotion, let it go where it wanted to go. I was kind of shocked at the goldish-yellow and thought it was too strong at first (for a natural landscape color), but as the foreground came into shape it receded in strength and, since my family and I took a sweet little road trip across the Navajo Res last summer, the title came to me in a flash:

Daily Whipout #50, "Many Farms Dust Storm"

Next up, a study that ended up on the cover of our May 2009 issue of True West:

Daily Whipout #51, "The Alamo: Davy Does San Antonio"

Daily Whipout #52, "O.K. Corral: All Guns On Billy"

Daily Whipout #53, "Pimwah, High In The Sierra Nevadas"

Daily Whipout #54, "Apache Crown Dancers"

"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible."

—Soren Kierkegaard
