When we are young many of us have unrealistic ideas on success and how our lives will end up. I was certainly one of those who had delusions of grandeur.
This was my fantasy of what being an artist would be like when I was just starting out. I believe this painting hangs in the Orsey, or, perhaps it's pronounced as the Horse-Hay (as in a horse hayloft) near Chloride, Arizona. It's not one of my favorites, but it is quite accurate to that time and place. I believe the female model later ended up as a Weather Girl on KSLX, in Scottsdale. Perhaps you remember her? Heather The Weather Girl.
