Beefmaster Bull

Lit by a sliver of sunlight coming through the barn window, this bull waits his turn to be shown at the Fort Worth Stock Show.

"Beafmaster"   18" x 24"   Oil


  1. That Stock Show is a rich source of shadow-themed inspiration. The ring in the nose echoed by the ring on the wall is a great design element. I'm struck by the contrast between the vivid, natural power of the bull and the man-made objects and setting -- all of which are symbols of control and confinement. Beautiful painting!
