Last Ride Rides Again!

My attention surplus disorder has kicked in & I can't stop messing with this. It's not exactly finished but this will have to do for now. Since the image is so tall & skinny, it shows up extra small here, so please click to see the details-- that's really what it's all about. That & the flames... inspired by Chris Buzelli & medieval apocalyptic illuminations.

Acrylic on old dictionary text (definition of "surge") on canvas, 6x12".

Oh, I almost forgot to give my tenuous connection to the topic-- this cowboy's soon to be out of a job!

just pray that he doesn't get you in to a war with Iran before he (mercifully saddles his mountain bike and rides back to Crawford).

"attention surplus disorder" Finally I know what I suffer from, and it's nice to see that some one else dose too! As is par for the course your work is brilliant.
