15” x 15” — Watercolor $1,650

When I was visiting my sister living in Texas she immediately scooped me up and whisked me away to the local, colorful, attractive Fort Worth Stockyards. So much flavor. Fort Worth embodies the authenticity of the true West. Of course to emphasize the town’s flavor, the Texas Longhorns are driven twice a day through the stockyard area for all to enjoy. This painting represents the cattle coming down the railroad ramp and the walk into town. I used an abstract background to give an emphasis on the cattle along with the rider. I chose not to use the town so the idea is the cattle are company for the rider.
