|24" x 36" Oil on Panel|
Upon arriving where I wanted to paint, I saw cowboys moving cattle in a nearby field. Figuring they were going to drive the cattle, I waited to see which way they would go. The cattle moved out onto the road and headed away from me.
"Good." I thought, "They're going away this time."
I set up the easel and secured a big panel onto it. Next, opened the big paintbox, hung the brush washer from the easel, and began squeezing paint onto the palette. Then a red pickup pulled up and the rancher driving it said to me,
"There's cows coming."
|Here They Come...|
|...and There They Go.|
Studio painters don't have to consider these kinds of things. That's too bad.
