IF - Dusty

In the dusty recesses of my mind an archetypal cowboy lives gleaned from childhood experiences of The Rifleman Man, BB guns and Grandpa’s cowboy hat. This cowboy is a strong individualist, a loner, who lives by a cowboy code and walks, every night, into the sunset.

REALLY NICE Bill!
His deepest dreams seem painful, and gives him pause. Nicely organized textures as well.
