And again and again, the hat continues. I'm still obsessed with the idea of painting in the American identity of the West. Western myth that extends further and further beyond America's borders and peacemaker is usually referred to a gun or sheriff; yet cloaked in the the peaceful subtle southwest motif. And basically I'm just enjoying a skull in a cowboy hat and I keep painting it till, welp, as long as I wish. lol
