This is the first time I have painted on this 6 x 18 x 2" canvas.  It was a great format for the longhorns.  This long and skinny canvas does not really photograph that well.  Especially when the auto focus on my camera has quit working and the auto focus in my eyes is sketchy because I see well from a distance but squat up close.
I have been using a palette knife more often lately because I have found it is easier on my hands.  Pulling paint out of my brushes for hours every day takes its toll on my hands.  ( This is all about Carol getting old today) I am happy with what is happening so all is good.
These long horns live in Eclectic, Alabama.  They belong to a lady named Robin.  This probably sounds very sexist but I think it is so cool that it is a woman who takes care of these cows.  She has a very big and beautiful herd.sold

  1. Wonderful effect using the palette knife Carol. It gives you that impressionistic feel. I hope you do more of these using the knife....
