Windblown Wonder & Olive's Dark Secret

June 23, 2017
   Working on a couple new things:

Daily Whip Out: "Windblown Wonder"

   I get on these scratchboard kicks, go crazy, then get going on something else and forget about all the unfinished boards in my studio. Found four partially finished scratchboards and took another swing at two of them. The one above and this one, below.

Daily Whip Out: "Cattywampus Cowboy"

   Last night I got an inspiraton to do a more shadowy version of Olive and her mysterious time among the Mojaves.

Daily Whip Out: "Olive's Dark Secret"

   I am going to do this one as a scratchboard as well. Record heat. Went out on the road this morning at 5:45 when it was 72 degrees. When I got back it was 82, and when I left for work at nine it was 101. I have to agree with another Zonie about living through this every year:

"Arizona is my natural native home. Nobody in his right mind would want to live here."
