I decided to paint. Not paint a wall or something like that, but paint a picture for the possible cover of my upcoming third novella. Then I rounded up my art supplies and set up "shop" on the kitchen island.
With Henry Standing Bear, Little Debbie and Big Al(ice) intensely watching me, I then started playing some of my favorite music, in hopes to be inspired, because a desert scene mainly consists of: cactus, sandy dirt, rock mountains, etc.
When Gary Stewart, one of my all-time, favorite singer/songwriter/musicians started singing one of his Classic hits An Empty Glass, I love that song, so I started trying to dance the two-step with Henry, while also holding Little Debbie, in my arms, while Big Al(ice) jumped up on the couch to watch us. And needless to say, "Henry needs some serious dance lessons."
Anyway, An Empty Glass was the perfect song to inspire my desert painting. And I just might use this painting for my upcoming, third novella The Cowgirl Sisterhood: Ghost Riders In the Sand. But please know that, I do have a few more ideas for the book cover that I want to try painting. So nothing is set in stone, so to speak. Here's my "Purple Mountain" that I painted earlier today.
