Chaps In Caps

8x10" oil on canvas, SOLD

I’ve mentioned before that writing these entries sometimes takes almost as much time as the painting. Well… not quite, but you get my gist. But the naming takes on a life of it’s own. I take it very seriously-- the name game. I mean after you give birth to these quirky little people you can’t just send them out into the world with a humdrum name. So sometimes I labor over these names and sometimes the right one just falls out of the heavens while I’m painting. And often enough, my daughter will walk into the room in mid-painting and, with the greatest of ease, THE name will just roll off her tongue. Like this one. Thanks, Cam!
