Painting and Drawings mid-1990’s


I painted at my cousin’s cattle ranch in Florida. My cousin and his wife are both artists. He is a very serious oil painter, more realist than I; he taught me how to ride a horse and herd cattle. Together we have covered and painted tree by tree, pasture by pasture his 600 acres. Painting outdoors, in bull pastures, pens, usually on the flatbed attached to the tractor. What’s relevant here is the intensity of nature, the quality of the tropical light, and the horizon line.
