Steppe Child

I'm painting Mongols.

You should be too.

The video is by Altan Urag
It's a new obsession of mine. These guys are the best.
The visuals are from Bodrov's Mongol from a few years back.
The Hippy watched the clip with me and said 'gaaack! holy blood shed Batman!' or something to that effect. We had watched the movie last fall and had fun with it and forgotten the sanguinous nature of the action until you view it distilled into a few minutes of galloping carnage.
Mongol pix next week!

For Bob

Sure, this has nothing to do with April Fools Day...

For Bob in Edmonton (and everyone else who says nice stuff about my painting) some gratuitous pictures of Erin Gray from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.

Ahhh, the 80's


And while not Erin Gray, this picture sums up my primal ambitions from 1980.
I really sucked at Defender.
