Patrick features in so many of my paintings these days. He's madly keen on pond and Creek dipping.It's hot work and my painting shows him taking a well earned "Freeze-pop" break. I think the giant blue bucket was a little ambitious considering he was catching minnows.

It's so hard to start posting again. It's been so long. I apologize to all the visitors who have been unable to see new paintings and I assure everyone that I am still alive and painting!
This was a fun commission, except that I wasn't able to find any Charolais cattle on the Eastern shore of Maryland. Luckily my sister came to the rescue. I found a breeding center in Sussex UK. She and her boyfriend spent a fun day with the farmer driving around the herd on a tractor. She then sent me some terrific reference. Not exactly how I like to work but It did the job.
