There’s been increasing interest by folks for going bigger with the horses, so while the Tahoe (in photo) has been a good field situation for small work I’m looking at studio space. Found this beauty nearby on a sketchy street of questionable little businesses, like used auto dealers who park their entire inventory of six cars half on the sidewalk. It looks like something from an Elmore Leonard novel. I like everything about it.
Sigh… Looking for something else I ran across this pic of us when my daughter, D, was nine – I’d realized she was tall enough to depress the clutch on the Jeep so I taught her to drive, spending a very happy and muddy day on low maintenance roads. She was a natural, and after instinctively turning into the direction of a skid I asked how she knew to do that. She answered, “Mario Kart.”
The very best painting I’ve ever made I’d rate about a 7. Typical are 4s and 5s. There are always, ALWAYS, parts I’m dissatisfied with, and the challenge is to shrug and accept that. This one’s okay, and that’s okay.
