Howdy folks. I have a photo for you today. This was taken at night here in New Mexico. It’s from a small series that I like quite a bit. Prints are available as well as autographed copies of my Memoir (“Too Country for Rock and Roll, Too Rock and Roll for Country: A Life on the Edge”) for a reasonable price. I’m also selling Frito pies online (can’t guarantee the quality, though). Have a good one! (I’m serious about the prints.)

Today, no painting. No drawing either. This is a photograph. It was taken last year out in West Texas, and I was going for the look of some kind of ritual. Those dashes around the can are my red shirt. There’s a flashlight and a tripod involved, this was taken after midnight. It annoys me to have to say this, but this is not a Photoshop intensive picture (Photoshop is your friend, not your enemy, by the way). It’s done the old-fashioned way (sort of). Yes, of course, it’s digital; I’m not a savage.

Have a great Friday everybody!
