Louis The XIV Out West

November 21, 2014
   Had a speech last night at the Phippen Museum in Prescott. A hundred rowdy guests, dinner, tall tales and a great time.  Got up this morning and whipped out a little drawing of Louis The XIV:

Daily Whipout: "Louis The XIV Out West"

   This is for an upcoming True West Moment. Meanwhile, I was cleaning in the studio and ran across this great, old photograph:

Pioneer Cowgirls

   I also ran across this painting which will appear in The Life & Legend of Mickey Free:

Daily Whipout: "Ay Chihuahua an Airborne Apache"

   While digging through my sketchbooks I found this amazing page of images:

Daily Whipouts: "Mucho Mexicanos"

   Dang, wish I could paint like this every day (this was five years ago!). Need to make a commitment to get back into this zone: and thinking about it, isn't the same as commiting. Meanwhile, I have made a thousand beginnings and there's only one end in sight.
