I just love the old tractors with the umbrellas. I do not see them very often but they have some kind of nostalgia that I like. This one is very impressionistic and painterly. Yesterday we went out to the olive ranch and someone had left the gate open and the cows were wandering in the orchard. It was frustrating but the cows were so cute! They follow each other and really did not like being separated from the herd. It was not to hard to get them back in the pasture with the rest of the cattle, especially with Jerry and I working together. I have 2 of my pastels well on their way for my M.F.A. class. They are not done but serious progress is being made. I have one more to start. I want all three going at the same time so that I can turn one to the wall while working on another. Then when it is turned around I will have a fresh eye to proceed. Have a great day.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
