And - so here I am. Just felt the need to spread my wings and be a bit more creative than animals. I took 3 classes from a wonderful teacher and painter on how to paint loose and colorful landscapes. Here are a couple of my results - and yes - I am having fun!
My latest painting. It is already sold and now doing a commission piece for another German Shepherd. I will have 5 pieces of framed art available for sale at the Die Kunstler Show/Sale in Fredericksburg, Tx, click here to see the show flyer and information at the Zion Lutheran Church on Nov 13-15.2015
This is my latest painting. The cow is a “black baldie”, it is a typical Angus Hereford cross bred. The black comes from the Black Angus and the white face from the Hereford. I took this photo in the winter, so the hair is nice and fluffy around the ears and top knot. There was a whole group of cattle that had just been put in this pasture and it was a beautiful sunny day. see all my watercolor artwork for sale
I love the challenge of painting black Angus – when you first look at them – all you see is black – but look closer – get a bit of sunlight on them – and their rainbow of color explodes. Click here to go to my shop to see all my work and make purchases
I have been busy taking photos at Lee and Linda Blackwell’s ranch in Mason Texas and some at Red McCombs Longhorn sale in Johnson City, Texas. It is just incredible to see these big beautiful Mammas and their babies. The color patterns on some of the longhorns are incredible- God really used his pallet. Here are just three of my latest this big cow was a gentle one and really just looking for a handout. The baby had super coloration and you can see the horns peeping out! The watercolor original of featured big one is at Agave Gallery, Fredericksburg . Prints can be ordered from my site on etsy
