Plein Air on a Texas Dude Ranch

oil on museum board

I went on a painting trip to the Silver Spur Ranch in 
Bandares, Texas.
They had tons of things to paint and I'd love to go back.
I'll share some more of my plein air paintings that I did there when I get back from the 
Plein Air Convention in Tuscon.
But right now I'm off to paint some cacti there.  Can't wait!

I have to give credit for this painting's clever title to my
friend Robin Cheers.
I was looking for something that combined the cow skulls
with the well worn John Deer tractor
and Robin said it perfectly- thanks!
You can see Robin's work here.

Thanks for letting me share my artwork with you!


  1. Perfect title! You make a tractor attractive and I adore the way you painted the tires!
    I went to Robin's blog. Another very good artist. Lucky friendship for both of you
