Two Versions of Black Jack Ketchum's Tapaderos

August 17, 2016
   It was on this date, August 17, 1899, that one of my shirt tail relations was captured near Folsom, New Mexico. My mother's kin claim we are related to "Black Jack" Tom Ketchum, the notorious train robber and outlaw who lost his head, in more ways than one. I have always loved the name, although he sounds like he was a bit of a loon.

Daily Whip Out: "Black Jack's Tapaderos, Version I"

   This is one of those cases where I was trying to file the above painting and just couldn't resist "improving" it. Not really sure I did. There is a looseness in the first one, above, that I think is lost in the over-colored one.
