Rounding Up 

Oil on Stretched Canvas 

Painted from a photograph by Julie Carter

Julie's photograph was lovely and my painting is pretty blobby. Cows are just blobs to me. I don't understand them at all. Horses and cowboys have a lot of detail and I'm not good with that either. However, I think the viewers will get the idea of this subject matter as long as they don't stand too close. I like the painting and I'm surprised because the subjects are rather loose and I generally like a bit more detail. The original photograph was taken at a ranch near Carrizozo, NM.
