Limited Palette Cow # 2 by Debbie Grayson Lincoln

6 X 6 Oil on canvas panel $100
Includes shipping and insurance in US
Here's the 2nd cow in the series, and it turned out the University of Texas' burnt orange school color. This palette should be easy for you to guess. Remember I am using complements.
Still no rain down here in central Texas. We watched a special on the Dust Bowl last week, and I see a number of parallels in then and now. Politicians promised the moon when they sold that part of Western Oklahoma to homesteaders. It looked like a deal that was too good to be true, and it was. That part of Oklahoma has been returned to the native state it once was. Mother Nature had nicely populated the ground with prairie grass and it thrived in the limited rainfall. There is a reason there are no trees in that part of our country - IT DOESN'T RAIN ENOUGH THERE!
There ARE trees in our part of Texas, though, and they are all suffering with lack of rainfall. It won't be long until the only live ones will be those surrounding houses where they get watered - much like West Texas! At least we will have plenty of firewood!
The palette used here was Red Orange, Yellow Orange and Blue. Did you get it right?
Genesis 8:2
Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky.
