A Cascading Collage of The Western Women We Love

 August 11, 2022

   Rebecca Edwards and I have been jamming on a big, fat collage to end the book with.

Daily Whip Outs:
"A Cascading Collage of The Western Women
We Love."

   I call this the checkerboard technique where all these scratchboards cascade off of a waterfall-like-base, running into each other until they become an entire, undulating mass. We also intend to replicate this on a big 20' X 8' wall at the Phippen Art Show in November.

   Jana and I are dedicating our Hellraisers book to our mothers and grandmothers. Speaking of which, here is the woman who lit the fuse for my passion on Western History.
