24" x 24" Oil on Gallery Wrap CanvasI must admit that I don't see too many of buffalo in Dallas. My inspiration for this painting was a photograph taken by studio painting partner Mark Malone. Last summer Mark and John Martin were driving near Cimarron, north of Angel Fire, New Mexico. Mark said that there were three buffalo close to the fence----I liked this fellow who was standing behind the fence. Mark had painted this buffalo, grazing in the field, and graciously gave me the opportunity to paint this creature. My first day of painting was fun...I splashed on some color, positioned the head off-center on the canvas. Day two was even more fun because I really got the color going. But by day three and four, I was struggling with the snout on this guy. I guess I have painted too many cows, and he looked more like a cow than a buffalo. After a critique by Karen, Suzy and Carol at the studio, I believe that I have captured the features on his head. This contemporary painting is full of color, wide brush strokes.
