I was completely lost when I entered our "Quick Draw" competition location. The roping contest was going white hot. Cowboys and horses are dashing out in a speed of zillion miles per hour. Am I supposed painting in this kind of situation? you must be kidding. I stood there like a piece of wood for at least 45 min, didn't do anything. Then I used my slowest paces painted this one. I only did a as few as possible strokes on my panel, but I try show there are zillion of people and animals there. Oh boy, life is so oxymoron.

I have decided to do this painting with a monochromatic color scheme. I felt this approach is rather suitable to the subject. The monochromatic scheme is not using one color and white. In order to keep the color harmony I need to use quite a few colors. I want to research more into this color scheme.

One of those ranch painting days, I found this old tractor in Christoval. It is quite unique; it has a steam engine. I had so much fun painting it. I was told that the owner of this machine found this old clunker abandoned somewhere in Texas wilderness. He disassembled it and shipped all the pieces back to his home in Christoval. He put it back together. Moreover, he made it run again. I myself really admire those handy people who can do almost anything.
This painting is still available

This is another painting I did on the En Plein Air Texas. It was very windy day. My easel has tipped over a few times. My Gamsol container flipped on my palette and got stuck in my fresh paint... what a mess it was. But I like this painting.
