Back to High School at the Williamsburg Film Festival

March 6, 2015   Left the True West World Headquarters at 11 on Wednesday and, after flying all day, got into Richmond, Virginia at about ten in the evening. Forty-five minutes later we were heading down the freeway in the rain towards Williamsburg. I was sitting up front in the Captain's chair, talking to Ray, the "celebrity" driver who has been doing this for the past 19 festivals. Behind us, sat two movie stars and a therapist. John Wayne held one of them in his arms, one made out with Steve…See More

"I learned the "Lavendar Cowboy" song in the late sixties. I googled it now, and it seems it was based on a poem written in 1923. Originally, it didn't necessarily refer to a gay cowboy, as tenderfeet from the East who tried cowboying…"

"Gay, the cloud does also ressemble a swan as well. Murray, i seem to remember that Burl Ives sang a song about a "lavender" cowboy."

The Pusse Cowboy vs. Giant Snapping Turtle Clouds

March 4, 2015

   It was an Ed Mell Cloud Orgy all day yesterday. Crazy amazing skies, including this giant, snapping turtle cloud that came right over the house and arced its big ol' beak into the back yard:

Van Gogh's Putrid Dogs

March 3, 2015

   Found a half-finished painting intended for a True West cover, way back in 2009 (Border Riders). Tweaked it good, for a change:

Daily Whip Out: "A Glowing Monument to Mexico"

   When I visited the border in…

True West Moments: The Switch?

March 2, 2015

   Working on a new True West Moment:

The Switch?

   On a cold night in March of 1881 outlaws tried to rob the Tombstone to Benson stage. When one of the highwaymen yelled out "Halt!" the shotgun messenger Bob Paul barked "I hold for no one!" and in the same breath unlimbered his shotgun and fired. The outlaws opened fire as well and the driver Bud Philpott was hit, fatally, and fell forward onto the wheel horses, who…

Scenes From A Lusty Life

March 2, 2015

   Had a very successful weekend painting. Raining like crazy right now. And when it gets like this I often paint clouds.

Daily Whip Outs: "Rain Clouds Galore"

   That led to an attempt to paint rain effects while…

Bob thanks for the invite to this site!!!
The Western's Channel is my favorite channel besides Turner Classic Movies. I love all the interstitial pieces you have done. I did one for Turner Classic Movies a few years ago. The Channel needs to use you more. Those pieces really make the channel more than just a movie channel. Now when I hear the word "tony" in an old western or book, I know what that means.

You can watch the TCM video about me here:

Thanks again for the invite to this site! I am looking forward to posting here and learning new stuff about the old west!

Happy New Year!

Thank you for the invitation, Mr. Bell. I am highly looking forward to the efforts being made to restore Alamo Plaza and other historical sites in the country.

All the best,

Bob...........Thanks for the invite. Having lived in the West almost my entire life, I too, have a true love of the old West. My wife and I watch mostly classic westerns instead of the drivel that modern TV promotes. This is my first post, and I'm not familiar, yet, with the website, but will keep tuned in to see what's happening..

I don't know whose idea this website was, but I'm gonna give you credit. I'll leave it up to you to pass it along to the right person or just take it for yourself. Thanks, man. Great website! As soon as all this snow melts, I'll start gathering pictures of every ghost town and point of interest in the state of Montana.
