Branding Day

Since before I moved to Michigan, I lived in Texas, I saw a lot of cattle. I even grew up on a cattle farm on the east coast. So, I decided to paint a picture that reflects some of my memories.

"Branding Day" depicts 3 ranchers branding a steer
“Branding Day” oil, 18 X 20 on linen canvas

Just so ya’ll know, my ex was a real cowboy who rode a horse and checked the fence line. I worked on a ranch two years ago, and so saw plenty of cowboys at work. I enjoy doing paintings that “tell a story” from time to time.

Palette: yellow ochre, burnt sienna, sap green, ultramarine blue, titanium white, cad. red light, alizarin crimson.
