My grandmother has a small desk that is off limits to all, crammed to the gills with papers and photos and mementos. I'm actually going to have to pack all of its content into boxes and put it in storage, as her house has fallen into disrepair with her not in residence any longer, and it's too moist and moldy for it to safely remain. Among those items are several toys of my father's that she would let me handle on occasion. One of them is a red plastic talcum powder bottle shaped like a stylized cowboy, with a white cowboy hat as a cap. While I've neglected to draw that hat, I'm pretty certain that this drawing is based on that bottle.
