SERIES: This & That

THIS & THAT  . . .   NOW & THEN

We get to these when we’re in the mood – or are commissioned!

Do them to experiment with themes and methods. Gauge the interest of new series.

Sometimes an image overwhelms, tugs the eye, pricks and prods. The easel gets the itch to paint it up – tale a break from Chiefs and Cowboys, California and the Provocatives.

So, now & then we toss a canvas on the easel about this & that!!

Little rhyme or reason in this category – except to observe that each one is, in its way, a commentary on the whole body of the Artist’s work.

Below, a selection.

[0401] “MAY LILLIE (Sharpshooter) #3”

May Lillie was queen of the Wild West Show. America’s first woman equestrian performer. Here she is on our canvas!

Don’t confuse her with Annie Oakley.  Folks do.  Could say, May Lillie was even a better shot.  Toured with Wild Bill Hitchcock, but went left with her entrepreneur husband, Pawnee Bill, for a show of their own.

When not on the road they operated one of the country’s first buffalo ranches: a labor of heritage preservation for both the ancient herds and the Plains Indians whose lives were tethered to them.

We love this woman.  Paint her up again & again. Its composition is perfect for tweaking and improving one’s skills, for experimenting with new methods. Done as exercises, like practicing piano scales

Something about the look of her compels us. Staying put (like Monet in his garden) we envisioning her on our easel – do and redo her, our May Lillie.

When dead and gone someone will put on an exhibit: “The 50 Versions of May Lillie, Sharpshooter”.  Get them now while they’re cheap! Snatch ’em up even before they hit the easel.

Announcements of upcoming & pending versions to be posted here.
