Re: Kay's Junk Journal

I like your outlaws theme, very cool that cattle rustler. The horse's rear end is wonderful, you really got the horse anatomy great. I've been studying horses ever since I moved back to Arkansas and I'm in awe. The pose on the rustler is good too. Great portrait of Clint Eastwood too. He really was the classic cowboy actor, always liked him more than John Wayne for that.

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

Good job on Eastwood and others (especially Santa).

One of my son's classmates was name "Rowdy" for you know who. The lad turned into a really bright computer "nerd" that runs his own business and loves it. I am not sure what his father thinks. Gary

Gary, many thanks. I'm sure Rowdy's father is probably accepting his son by now is not a Clint/cowboy type!

Here is John Wesley Hardin, a Texas outlaw, aka Dark Angel of Texas who killed 21 men. Charcoal over gessoed book page, then Tim Holtz distress ink applied with a brush to the page.

If you meant to do menacing, you succeeded. Gary

Very menacing, and love his odd proportions. Very strange face.

Thanks Joan and Helen

Today I was just messing around with mixed media inks over a National Geographic page I'd put CitraSolv on to dissolve printing inks for future collage and came up with this. An unknown outlaw who has traveled out west in search for women, wine, and war. Acrylics and white gel pen were added; this is Bad Boy

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

Oh, he looks like it. Strange texture you got on the page and it really helps with his rough features. Very distinctive look. Love the highlights in his curls, makes his hair look very shiny.

Thanks Joan and Robert

Today was outlaw #6, Baby Face Nelson aka Lester Gillis. He was a bank robber and murderer, assassinated at age 25 a life of crime that didn't pay. Charcoal sketch over gessoed page, pencil, latex acrylic pink paint, Montana acrylic marker in blue (reference to "baby" colors), and collage.

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

Oh that's neat! Cool treatment of Baby Face, the baby colors are awesome. Great rendering too. So dramatic. I love the strong lighting and accurate features, this is so period and powerful. Great series you're doing! I like your theme. Heh, these guys did die young.
