Hook Em and Wild Bore

"Hook Em"___9 x 12 oil on linen panel___Framed and ready to ship!
Here is a nice little Texas Longhorn, painted loose and framed in black. I also post another old drawing from my childhood portfolio. This wild "bore" (a title that might make some of my students laugh!) was copied from a Walter Foster lesson book called "How to Draw Animals". I was 8 or 9 when I drew the "bore" and distinctly remember thinking how HARD it would be to draw, but I tried anyway.....speaking of longhorns...CONGRATULATIONS to the University's baseball team, headed to the regionals after winning the conference (again)... I am still "out west", spending this night in Las Cruces, NM, after spending some time today, exploring the San Xavier Mission south of Tucson, with artist friend
Lydia Dillon-Sutton who grabbed a barrel cactus with her bare hand when she lost her balance on a trail....yes, OUCH!

Very fun. I really like the longhorn - nice loose quality.

It's fun to see the drawing that you did as a child. I used the Walter Foster books, too - though mine had horses in it. Haha - I still have that book *smiles* Thanks for the memory!
