Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
A cowboy and his dog are taking a break while the herd grazes in a mountain meadow. As a child, my first love was horses, and then dogs. What better way to combine childhood memories than a painting that embodies both? Cowboys have used dogs as herding partners practically ever since they started gathering cows. I used my dog Shep as a model for the dog. However, I had to take a few liberties with her; she is a Samoyed cross and I had to go back to her Border Collie roots and make her a smaller dog; a little longer and narrower. She told me she didn�t mind.
