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:
This is the original painting:
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).
