The Classic Harold's In Cave Creek

June 17, 2013
   Working on a variety of images and ideas. Whipped this out over the weekend.

Daily Whipout, "He Didn't Like What He Saw In The Middle of The Road."

Deena Bell is expecting this week. Her mother was obligated to pose for me even with a baby (Deena!) on her hip. I'm still cleaning in the garage (five full bins of paintings and trash, so far). Found this in the piles of crap. This is Kathy posing as Honkytonk Sue in the old, original Harold's of Cave Creek in 1980.

Kathy is pretending to hold a beer. Ha. I was intrigued by the old style booths Harold had tucked away in the back of the joint. Of course, I had my father time with the little girl as well. Here I am in our old farm house at Seventh Avenue and Indian School about 1981, when I worked at New Times, publishing and still drawing Honkytonk Sue, the comic strip.

I'm making an art pile of stuff I might give away. Stay tuned.
