The Edge of The Painted Desert And The Apache Kid Stands in The Pass

June 6, 2019
   The heat is finally here. We dodged the bullet for a solid two extra weeks but now it's time for heatwaves and heartache. The good news is that it only lasts for four-and-a-half months.

   Speaking of heatwaves, one of my earliest memories is coming across old Route 66 in eastern Arizona with my dad driving and out the open window (no AC) I spied the rippling mesas of the Painted Desert. This is my memory of that scene.

Daily Whip Out:
"The Edge of The Painted Desert"

      Rounding up all my Apache art for my next book. Found this tall piece and gave it another go:

Daily Whip Out:
"The Kid Stood In The Pass Defiantly

   This is actually only a part of a taller painting.

   Speaking of the Duke of Dust, here is another piece I grabbed for the book:

Daily Whip Out:
"Dust Devils Are Bad Medicine"

   For some reason, I'm feeling very creative. I wonder if Raymond Chandler has anything to say about that.

"The more you reason the less you create."
—Raymond Chandler
