The Onlookers

The Onlookers, 6 x 6
Really happy with this one today. I have always loved paintings with cattle in them; maybe because I grew up in Abilene and various parts of West Texas where they are a consistent part of the landscape. So I was excited to get to do one myself, even if they are just brown and white strokes on an already small canvas. I used a photo I'd taken while visiting a ranch with my husband recently--the cattle were mildly curious about our presence....
