Any bulls around?




After selling our big ranch house last summer and keeping the working land for the cattle, we have decided that we need a smll place to stay for the weekend so now we are slowly building what will be a one story small house. This will mean going out to the ranch every weekend for me again. It will also give me a chance to do some charcoal and pastel plein air that I am very much looking forward to.

I am working on the grisaille part of my painting now and as soon as I have it looking like a graphite drawing and ready to start applying color to it, I will post it.

In the meantime I just had to post the pictures of our 7 month grandaughter Sofìa. She definately inherited the ranching genes from her grandfather.

Thank you Cinthia and Jeanette! Yes I do want to do a little portrait of her but I better hurry because they grow out these stages so fast.

What's happened to the abstracts Mary?

Mary said...

Billie, Anita, Leonor and Babs, thank you for the comments and the visits.

Phillip thank you for checking out my blog. I think it is necessary for me to find my true self although that does not mean I will forget abstracts, I might just pop one in all of the sudden but with Michael's mentorship I think it will help me even with the abstracts.

Philip said...

Mary - your abstracts were just brillliant and needed no mentoring at all from where I am sitting. You could teach others a thing or two!

Mary said...

Thank you Philip! You hit a soft spot so I started an abstract in your honor. Hope I don't ruin it!

Philip said...

Well Mary I am the one who is honoured! I love your abstracts!
