Pat Garrett Hugs The Wall

February 2, 2018
   Went home for lunch and tweaked an old pen and ink drawing I did way back in 1992. Thought it could use a little more "mood." Pat Garrett and Lon Chambers hug the wall at Bowdre's Fort Sumner adobe, as five horsemen ride out of a powder-blue fog.

Also working on a study for a certain young firebrand who inspired the so-called Brewster Wagon Train and their exodus to the land of Bashan. 

Daily Whip Out: "James Collins Brewster"

"Let the reader compare these prophesies with the destructions that have befallen the world for the last five years, for they have exceeded in amount and severity all that was ever experienced in twice that length of time before. These evils are constantly and rapidly increasing. . .these writings [by Esdras] foretell the evils that the inhabitants of the earth shall suffer in these days because of their wickedness and making known the place where, and the time when, the kingdom spoken of by Daniel, be established, the place that shall be truly a city of refuge for the Saints of the Most High God, where they shall enjoy the res of which so many of the ancients prophecied (SIC). The country designated for the commencement of this great work, is eastern California, or the Valley of the Colorado and Gila Rivers, where the Saints are to gather from all the countries of the Earth, and establish and build up the Kingdom of Righeousness, never to be left to other people, but shall stand forever."
—James Collins Brewster's prophesy in March of 1848, of an Eden to be established in a place that eventually became Yuma, Arizona

The prophecy address James Colin Brewster used to
entice the Oatmans to join him.

"Most people get excited about games, but I've got to be excited about practice, because that's my classroom."

  1. Must've been very charismatic; his prophecy demanded putting life/lives at stake.
