Got laid off back in October,which really has been a god-send,
as I spend almost everyday painting, and have been pursuing work
in the Living History venues I know. Am waiting to see if a job with the History channel comes thru or not. Other than that just painting away. Just finished a painting of a gunfighter (watercolor)
You should give facebook a try, I found it really lots easier to navigate than MySpace. I use it to upload my artwork and keep in touch with LH friends back east.
I just started working with a gallery again after about six years
away from them.....a friend of Dave Powell's in Montana, so far so good. I love the movie & TV stuff, but they rarely seem to have
the budget to warrant working on one for very long. I tried Ebay,for art sales for a while this summer & Fall, but the economy went to hell
along with art prices.
Nice shootin there Jim, whered them boys get all them matchin white ponies. All those blue uniforms kinda make a southern mixed breed boy like myself a little nervous. Really like the South Dakota area, up there last winter, if you could do somethin about all that snow I would move there. Last time we had that much white stuff on the ground the cotton gin blew up.
Dances With Wolves filming 20 years ago -- Bill Stevens is starting to plan for a 20 year celebration in Pierre. He's thinking of inviting cast and crew, and anyone interested in the film. It's just in the begining planning stages now.
Next time you slip into Deadwood lat me know I have a buddy there you might look up. If he aint drinkin at the old #10 then hes playin cards there. Goes by Wolf, hell of a nice guy and might be worth sketchin for somethin.
I didn't. However, I might just do it now that you reminded me of it. I located a place with muskrat skins, but haven't gotten around to ordering them. Their prices were very reasonable, I thought. I also wanted to learn a little more about the hats in question, and actually found a pretty good photo of one in a Gary Hendershott catalog. Anyway, I appreciate the information you sent... I'm just a procrastinator.
Got this question that I don't know the answer. Do you?
Did the Calvary train their horses in dressage? I would like to know if this is true. Thank you for your time and if you would like to visit my
web site and sign my guest book I would be honored.
I caught Les Shorts name mentioned on your blog. He was my great uncle, his sister Marjorie Short/Ebersole is my grandmother and my father is Jerry Ebersole who lived with Les's brother, Gene Short in Plains for a good part of his childhood. We just moved from the Colorado Rockies to the Tallgrass Prairie here in southeast KS, not far from Howard. It is a small world sometimes and I just wanted to say hello.
