I finished this miniature gouache today. I am naming it "Peace".
There is a cool story behind this painting. I live near a very large cattle ranch and I noticed a new calf was born as I drove my son to school in the morning one spring day last year. He was snow white and in the early morning sun he shown like a beacon in the field. He seemed very happy to be photographed and just looked at me with those gorgeous big eyes. I noticed that the small weeds that were near where he lay projected the shadow of a perfect cross up along his midsection. It was truly a beautiful sight. I knew I had to paint him. "Peace" is my version of the Lion and the Lamb....Ozark style.
Happy Painting!

Yikes I have a blog!

Who has time for a blog as an artist? Well we shall see. Everyone else has a blog :) So let's dip the toe in the cyber pool and see what happens.
