When Books Refuse to Die!

October 30, 2017
   Remember when I said the Wild Bill book was finally done? Remember when I said I could finally relax? Remember when I said a book is not done until the presses start running? Well, one of these statements is true.

Daily Whip Out: "Wild Bill Rides On (Final)"

   Our Commander-In-Chief, Robert Ray, got the proofs back from the printer today and he asked me if I wanted to make any changes at $25 a pop. So I went home for lunch and tweaked three paintings, including the above image of Wild Bill riding on and added it to a weak page that needed something (page 26). I also wanted to add this bad boy, below, but couldn't find a hole for it.

Daily Whip Out: "Stag His Nibs! (Final)"

   And had this painting, below, in mind for the Cheyenne who attacked Wild Bill and lanced his leg, but, once again, no hole, no place to jam it.

Daily Whip Out: "Kiowa Ghost Riders (Final)"

   Got a wonderful note from my son, Thomas Charles, about loving the open road, which led me into Carole Glenn's office where I found this one, below, which I plan on sending to him as a gift, ahem, down the road.

Daily Whip Out: "On The Road Before Dawn"

   This weekend I also started a couple scratchboards, including this one of my favorite captivo:

Daily Whip Out: "Olive's Dark Secret"

   I sure feel for that young woman and all the people who tried to help her.

"We could not erase the wild from her heart."
