Mickey Free Stares Into The Abyss

December 11, 2012
Yesterday, I went home for lunch and whipped out a little study utilizing a photograph Bob McCubbin sent me this week of a young cowboy posing with a Henry Rifle.

I want it!

Meanwhile, I've been wanting to do a set piece of Mickey Free on the trail of the Apache Kid. He comes to a yawning chasm (Copper Canyon which is allegedly six times bigger than the Grand Canyon) and sees, first hand what he's up against.

Speaking of wanting something:

"I can tell you how to get what you want: You've got to keep a thing in view and go for it and never let your eyes wander to right or left or up or down. And looking back is fatal."
