Introducing me

Hi and I should say Howdy,

This is a photo of me a few years back when I used to do shows for the tourist in Virginia city. I always played a bad guy. I fell down alot cause i got shot a lot lol well since I turned 60 and over I don't like falling down and it was kinda funny to watch me get down on the ground after I had been shot lol (For the shows mind you...I was the bad guy lol) Thought I'd show you. it was a fun time. and the other pic is one of my first western digital's I painted. I have since painted this on canvas. It looks pretty good hanging in the guest room. Hope you guys like these. Everyone have a great day!

Re: Introducing me

Wow! I love the rugged costume! You might paint a self portrait and put it in our Notorious Outlaws thread, John. Too cool! Your digital painting is gorgeous!

Re: Introducing me

John, this is great introduction! I can just imagine how much fun you must have had playing the bad guy. What a wonderful getup you got to wear, too. Looks like great fun! Thanks for letting us get to know you a bit. Your digital painting is fantastic, too! I hope we see much more of your work.

Re: Introducing me

KreativeK Thank you for your kind comment. Lol ya I almost always played a bad guy. Everyone thats ever seen me in person says I look like I was born in the wrong ERA. HAHA, Steel Blue eyes, Jet Black Hair and an attitude of stone cold coolness even in the heat of the Mojave. hahahaha But my Moniker they tagged me with didn't seem to frighten anyone....They called me Cleatus.

Re: Introducing me

Hi jennaboo88 Thanks for liking my work and yes it was a ton of fun walking up to a tourist wearing cut off jeans and asking him why he cut his pants off. OMG that was fun lol People would ask me all the time if my guns were loaded and I would tip my hat a little and look at them with squinted eyes and and answer in a slow deep and dry voice "you wanna find out?" lol I know I'm a stinker lol And yes I hope to post more western paintings soon.

Lucky you, you got to say the stuff so many of us think and get away with it, because you were the bad guy. Probably the best job ever!

Re: Introducing me

Sounds like you had a fun job would love to see a self portrait dressed in your garb of the day.

Re: Introducing me

Good to meet you John! I like your digital paintings. You would fit right in here in Cheyenne, as we have Gunslingers that do old west shoot out reenactments all summer long for the touristos.
