a strong moody eminence is engendered in this painting.
dark colors mix comfortably almost narcotically dreamy.

Thank you Jerry. I tried to capture the long deep shadows of the late afternoon with the top of the hill still bathed in light. A very dreamy time of day for me, I'm tickled pink that it 'shows'. Thanks!

TeAnne, Here's another attachment. I lighted and brightened it in photoshop. Hopefully it'll show up better for you. Let me know if this works for ya or not.

Sandi, I really like the overall feeling in this, but wonder if a little highlight or slight definition to the animal closest would help. I cannot seem to make out what kind of animal it is.
Love your color choices.

Cool

Sandi,

I'm glad you lightened the image, my monitor here really bytes!

I like it too, with it colors and textures enhancing its moody quality. I agree that the animals are vague, but I interpret them only as spots of colors and shapes, secondary to what you're trying to convey. Ken

Thanks (((all)))) I really appreciate your input.

The first cow, in real life, is REALLY good. I was stoked at myself, in fact. lol. But, in the jpg it lacks terribly. I think I'll add a bigger cow and turn the first into a calf. Then I'll play a bit more with the further ones... making them subdued yet recognizabler. Sounds good on paper?

Here's Mom & Dad's ranch scene that I've taken from. Fire away!

Sandi,
I can tell they are cows. NO problem. And I'll tell you something else: I lived on a ranch for ten years. Awesome. I could hear the cows chew. This painting really captures a feel, a mood, a time of day. The fields stretching on............you got it. *Don't Mess with it No More!!!!*
Aurora/who misses the cows terribly

Aurora, you're welcome to come to our ranch any time.

Thanks for your comments all. I'll leave as is, like Ken and Aurora suggest, and I'll begin a new one with larger cows for the greenhorns.

Modesto! Oh my gosh. I was raised mostly in Ceres with a year or two in Gilroy at IOOF, before moving to nor cal. My Aunt and Uncle had a horse ranch in Turlock all their life. My Dad's family had a horse ranch in Modesto/ceres/turlock somewhere. (they disowned me when I was 2. Guess I was too terrible in my 2's, lol. It's their loss, let me tell ya.). Remember the movie American Graffiti? I swear that one car fanatic guy was taken from my oldest brother. He spent every night cruising Modesto in his 'baby'.
Hmmm, I seem to be spilling my life story. lol. Well, there's more, but I'll save it for a rainy day.
Maybe we know some of the same families? Email me sometime.
