We are encouraged to eat a rainbow, but it is just as satisfying to paint a rainbow of vegetables. This watercolor is in the early stage, with lots of vibrant colors to come. Early summer upon us, and young vegetables are putting on growth. I’m already anticipating my backyard garden to table meals.
This week, I had the wonderful experience of visiting the Fey Longhorn ranch, located in Yamhill, Oregon. Daniel and Angelina Fey raise registered Texas Longhorns, and they graciously allowed me to photograph their handsome animals. These longhorns are richly colored and sport impressive horns, and they were very even-tempered. Even with calves at their sides, the cows allowed us fairly close, and were curious about us. It’s evident that these owners are a daily presence around their cattle. I feel like I have been gifted with a mother lode of painting possibilities. Thank you, Daniel and Angelina Fey!
