Another from the Archives

Heres another favorite from the archives.  My husband modeled for this back in '08, around this same time of year.  Temperatures are dropping this week, giving us our first taste of snow.  After living most of my life in Montana, I'm still always amazed at how quickly the weather can change.

Work mode....

A Passing Presence                                 SOLD                                    24x30"  oil-canvas

I've been hitting the studio hard the past few weeks and thought I'd stop by the blog for an update.  I've been working on several paintings at once, trying to catch up after a busy season on the ranch.  I like to remind myself during these times, that one (my art) would not exist without the other (the ranch.)  The Muse is fickle that way, and I try to attend to her needs whenever possible.
So heres one for the Muse, an old favorite of mine.  I love Pronghorn, sometimes called Antelope here in Montana.  They live out here on the ranch among the cows.  Soon they'll gather in large herds for mating; a spectacular sight to see, as hundreds gather en mass to roam across the prairie.

Sleeping Paint Horse

Sleeping Paint Horse          12 x 16"       oil/canvas panel
Heres a subject I never get tired of.  My paint horse Bones.  He's been a good cow horse for me for many years, and is just coming into his own.  He's got more gas than this image portrays, but I love how peaceful he looks while he's napping.  This  is a larger version of a painting I did a few years back called Tail Wind.  It is hanging at Latigo & Lace in Augusta, Montana.
