A hot summer day, heading downhill toward another pasture with, hopefully, greener grass. You may draw a parallel with today's economic situation. We must descend to the valley before we climb the mountain.
I painted this from a photo taken by fellow artist Doug Prine. Doug is very generous not only with his talent and teaching, but also with the hundreds of photos he takes. I don't normally paint from photos taken by other artists, but this one was impossible to resist. I am going to paint it again much larger, and probably place the cowboy coming up over the edge of a ridge with a touch of sky visible.
Last week I spent about 30 minutes at the end of friend, Debra's, driveway taking several hundred photos of her neighbor's longhorns. I am particularly fond of their champion steer, Rusty. There were also a number of cows with their younguns and several other steers. I am so fortunate to live in an area with uncountable critter models! I really don't need to travel far from home.
Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?
