I painted Calf Romp from one of my photos taken while exploring a cattle farm near Waxahachie. I've completed three oils from these photos so I can safely say that this was a productive afternoon of searching for subject matter.
The actual photo was focused on a barn to the right. Looking at this photo later I noticed the beautiful late-afternoon light on this calf's face as it romped almost out of view.
I will probably enter this image, along with three others, in the National Cowboy Museum's Winter Art Show. I've never entered this show before but I would love to get in.
