Not far from my elementary school in Simi Valley, California. This awesome formation, complete with an arch below the trunk, used to be on private property. On the ranch of the fabled old man Runkle no less. If he caught you on his land you would surely take a shotgun blast of salt rock in the rear end. Or so the legend goes. Now it is surrounded by houses but I left them out for old times sakes.
This one was quick at about 19 1/2 hours. Can’t wait to see a proof!
30 second time lapse below.
19″x 24″ pencil drawing from back in the day. Inspired by the Santa Monica mountains. This place almost really exists. I added the teeth and moved a cheek bone or two on the rocks. Oak trees, ravens and sandstone. Simi Valley all the way!
Check out the “Skull Mountain” sketch in the Portfolio for the original sketch of the rocks in the background.
I’m going to print a round of 20 of these. Full sized prints on premium grade paper, signed and numbered. All prints come with Certificate of Authenticity and a photo from my Ledger where I track all of my prints. $250 each through PayPal. Send me a massage if you are interested.

#3 of 3. “Shane” may be one of the all time most iconic westerns and this scene with Alan Ladd’s “Shane” facing off with Jack Palance as “Wilson” is the tense conclusion. Jack is the epitome of western bad guys and he really doesn’t like being called “a low down yankie liar.” It took 72 and 1/2 hours not counting research. This one put a strain on the old iPad.

#1 of a 3 painting series. An ode to two Eastwood classics, “A Fistful of Dollars” and “Unforgiven”. This one was completed in 30 hours and 15 minutes. 150 megabytes plus in the working file. I printed a 12”x 24” for my bar. The only one that exists. My first print from Pixels & Ink in Reno. What a difference an excellent printer makes. Thanks guys!

This one was actually started and then was completely scrapped because the resolution was to low and then was redone from beyond the horizon forward as I like to work. From “The Magnificent Seven”, these were the bad guys guarding Boot Hill. What a great scene with Yule Brenner and Steve McQueen running them off. Don’t offhand know the names of these five but they look like they mean business. All digital concocted in Procreate on iPad Pro. Almost 60 hours of work. 12″x 28″.
