This morning I started working on a certain blue-eyed vaquero:
Daily Whip Out: "Ojos de Gringo"
Get my drift?
Full Disclosure: I poached those facial shadows from a giant poster at this guy's house last weekend:
Larry Winget in his private bourbon stash room. Yes, those are all bourbon bottles from floor to ceiling, with Elvis Decanter Bottles along the top row.
Larry has a wonderful Italian "Fistful of Dollars" movie lobby card in the foyer of his Paradise Valley home. I joined them for dinner last Saturday night and when we walked by the poster I was stunned at the subtlety of the shadows in Clint's face:
A close-up on Larry's Italian movie poster
for "Fistful of Dollars"
The movie poster is a big sucker, four-and-a-half feet wide by six-and-a-half feet tall. It is stunning, to say the least. Those damn Italians know what they are doing!
Larry confided to me he got it for $3,750 framed. Dang! That is a steal. Anyway, that's where I got the inspiration for the face on "Ojos de Gringo," at top. I'm not there yet, but I see how they got there and I'm on the hunt.
