Ah, fun and interesting. Great expression on right-hand cowboys face. Is the left-hand cowboy in hat and boots a cow-bear? Looks like a teddy bear. Are you teasing us here?

This is wonderful! The truck is priceless with those longhorns attached to the hood. Love this! It's all good!

Hi there! Where have you beeen? I love this as a landscape and an editorial! The bears expressionless face makes me smile. I think this is at the top of my favorites I have seen of your work...except of course, for the great big fish one on aluminum :D

Stephan....I could swear that I have seen this in a Post Office painted as a mural! Very Benton and a bit of Wood! The pickup...as with the rest...is very well done. Jim

thanks for all the positve feedback guys...this one was my response to bud and sissy...when i was working as a bartender in a country western bar...some stories there....

the beardude was really a Praire dog....but i guess his hat makes him look like a bear....and im glad that people relate to its satiric humor...despite all my focus on the war stuff...i beleive we should all be having more fun with each other while we are here...

Hi Steph,

That Sherrif knows what's going on, he knows what to do but just don't want trouble. Should he just forget the whole thing. The cowboys know him. Do you think they don't even now he's there. They don't even care.

I got a good A4 printer to Epson A4 R299. It fantastic, although a new set of 6 cartridges cost nearly as much as the printer itself.

A drama in the making and much which could be said.

The printer is amazing, but how to sell the prints is another matter.
