I think in another reality I would love to ride a giant rooster, mask over my eyes, a red scarf about my neck and silver spurs on my boots. Wielding a Scythian sword I would fly to the rescue of every child and damsel in distress. Unfortunately, it appears I'll just have to settle for this reality and ...paint flattering pictures of my favorite steeds . I need to update the photo of this 'cause I worked a bit on it after I took the picture. That's what happens when you leave a painting on the easel too long.

Picture One: Charlie looked down on me while I slept. He's my Mexican guardian angel when I stay at the in-laws (last weekend...it's Carmen's grandfather). Eddie is my oldest boy (19). He's leaving next week to spend three months in Alaska to work the salmon season. He is the chief frame maker in our little artistical enterprise here in the desert. He will be missed but old Eli is planning on taking up the slack while his big brother is away. Eddie plans to send dad lots of fish fillets...and hopes to inherit the photo of Charlie Chaplin, uh, I mean his great grandfather one day.
Picture Two: New painting titled "Dusk" It measures 12x18 inches, canvas mounted on board. For sale on auction here.
