I came across this cast of sketchy characters on a trip to Kentucky back in the fall. They must have been really confused/disappointed when I didn't produce a bucket of feed for their trouble (they followed me around like lost puppies)! After living in sunny New Mexico~ it was interesting to paint the subtle definition of color & form from cloud diffused light.

I am continuing to experiment with using the cholla in my frames~ I really like extending the southwestern feeling beyond the content of my paintings. Not only is it an opportunity to customize a frame~ I think it's an opportunity to add depth to how the viewer actually see's the subject (literally & figuratively). I can't wait to try another one!
