After much thought about what title to use, I remembered a line from the movie, Tombstone, starring Kurt Russell (as Wyatt Earp) and Val Kilmer (as Doc Holliday). Close to the end of the movie Johnny Ringo sent a message to Earp, wanting to end their feud. The messenger said to Wyatt Earp, Ringo wanted to make sure he got your attention, Marshall! He wants a strait up fight, just you and him, to settle this thing once and for all… Oak Grove, at the mouth of Silver Springs Canyon, 7:00!
The shootout at Oak Grove is one of my favorite scenes of the movie. I’ve memorized it, lol! The gun slinging at Oak Grove didn’t take place between Earp and Ringo as agreed, but between Doc Holliday and Ringo. You’ll need to watch the movie to see why.
Anyway, the messenger’s line to Earp gave me the idea for this title.
The painting isn’t of any place in particular. I just wanted to do a painting illustrating a rural scene at dusk. Posted 9/19/2011
