Honky Tonk Blues

Here is another new painting destined for the Art Now show. I've been enjoying working on these cowboys at a little larger scale, about 3 x 4 ft. The increased scale has given me opportunities to really push the tension between the areas that are tightly rendered and those that dissolve. In addition, this lets me build up an area, really destroy it and then build it back up again.
