2 Cowpokes at Scottsdale's Western Spirit Museum.

We may be a tenderfoot but we sure look good, don't we?  A little tromp l'oeille goes a long way in this remarkable painting.  It looks 3-D, but it's flat, with no depth at all.  One of docents encouraged Jason and me to line up just-so:  me with my feet on the rock, and Jason standing on the bank of the creek.  We moved our hands and arms at the command of the docent, so that we achieved the appearance of stroking a mane, or holding the horn of a western saddle.  The painting was created, in 72 hours, start to finish.  Can't wait to share this creation with .... well, the world!
