A visiting painter goes large

June 27, 2022

   Got a visiting painter in the Triple B Studio this week. Her name is Harper and she is fearless and she loves to paint big as all life.

Grandpa Ha Ha predicts she will go far.

  If there's one thing I do really well, it's having serious doubts about the artwork I have completed. Nobody I know goes back to try and salvage a ruined painting more than I do. But the key to the exercise is—did I actually save it? Case in point:

Daily Whip Out: "Cowgirl Rocket Ride"

   This failed little painting has been sitting on the side of my art desk for months and I have opined every time I looked at it. On a recent walk up Old Stage Road I got the inspiration: I must walk past a dozen horses going up to Morningstar and back and yesterday I noticed a common phenom in the early morning light.

   Meanwhile, still trying to capture the nightime story effects of running washes and a buckboard on the brink.

Daily Whip Out:

"When Sharlot Hall Pulled A Gun

On Grover Cleveland, 2"

   Got the water, now to nail that buckboard.
