Just a note to answer a question posed on yesterday’s post… Yes, I painted that skull!
Back in the day, southwest decor was big and one of the mainstays of it seemed to be painted skulls, either buffalo or bull. Always looking to make a very extra pesos, I jumped in and painted quite a few! I think I probably sold ONE!
Anyway, they’ve just hung around, literally, since then. Most are bulls, as in Hereford, but I did a few buffalo, too. Want to know how to tell the difference? Buffalo horns curve UP. Horns from cattle like Herefords curve DOWN. (If you want to see Horns, with a capital H, go check out the Watusi or Longhorn breeds!)
The one I hung behind my stove was always my favorite…
If you’d like to see the discovery of my buffalo skull (and you’re new to this blog), here’s a great video to watch (or rewatch if you’ve followed me for a while!) Thanks, Jerry, for posting this question!
Also, for Susan… my studio will double as my “guest house”, should people be looking for a more rustic getaway than my house! A microwave and mini fridge would make it pretty perfect, don’tchya think?
