“No Country for Old Women” makes cover of San Diego Reader

My painting “No Country for Old Women” hit the web and the streets of San Diego today when it was used the cover illustration of the Jan. 28, 2016, issue of the San Diego Reader. Art director Jessica Wentzel requested permission to rearrange the elements in the existing painting to fit her cover design, and I agreed.

While I created the painting in 2010, it’s uncanny how well it illustrates the cover story, “None Shall Pass,” about a man who says he was shot last July by a 63-year-old woman sitting in a folding chair in the middle of a gravel road that was a disputed easement. She goes on trial for attempted murder in March; fascinating story.

This is the cover:

No Country For Old Women

FYI, the original painting is framed behind conservation clear glass and for sale ($300) — done in pen & ink, watercolor and Chinese brush painting on Arches paper. Contact me if you’re interested (click Contact in top menu).

Limited edition, signed glicee prints in two sizes are available in my Etsy store here.

    Marylin, Congrats on this cover! Glad to see you’re still pursuing the finer artist in you! I still have that painting you made of me with your horses–remember? Oh so many many years ago. Makes me feel young all over again every time I look at it.
