Splitting Hairs & Adding Ropes

September 26, 2013
   Got halfway to the office yesterday after lunch and realized I forgot to give the Straight-up Remington Rider a rope.

Daily Whipout, "Cowboy Ground Zero Straight-up Remington Final"

   You'll notice I gave the V at bottom some definition to accent the search for cowboy ground zero. Oh, and I fixed his hat.

   Had Dan The Man do a cover version with this painting just for grins and here's what Mr. Harshberger came up with:

Cowboy Ground Zero Cover #7

   Respectable, although both Dan and Ken think the other pose is stronger with the two guns and blasting off of a Spanish map to emphasize the ground zero aspect. Started two more versions this morning and got the background washes in. Going home for lunch to finish and send down to the Harsh. Stay tuned. Print is so unforgiving. You send it to the printer and it stays that way for a very long time.

"I have decided that the trouble with print is it never changes its mind."
