Thea and I stopped by for a visit with our friend Robert Cafazzo in his Two Graces Gallery on the Ranchos Plaza a couple of days ago. There is always so much to see there, and this time was no exception. Books, paintings, sculpture, antiques, and, yes, Kachinas. This Kachina, in particular, caught my eye, and I could hardly wait to paint it. Thanks, Robert.

Last night in Wickenburg was cold, it rained most of the night, and the wind rocked ol' Betsy like a cradle. I was up early and off to the parade, where I photographed non stop for about two hours, then to the Seven Bar Cafe, downtown, where I snagged a parking spot, for a lunch of fried chicken and mashed potatoes (an exception, but what the heck, it was cold and I've been behaving for days).

By the time I finished lunch, it was time for the rodeo and another two and a half or three non stop shooting hours. It was so cold, and I'd been standing on uneven ground for so long, that when I turned to leave I could hardly walk, and must have looked like some doddering old man. And I'm not even 72, yet!

I reported right to Betsy and, because there was no time to download any of the day's research, I painted this Longhorn Study that I've been sneaking up on ever since I visited my friend and ace mechanic Austin Stockdale's place on the ranch in Victorville.

Tomorrow is going to be a long day of catching up on image management, probably in the library, if it's open.
