Feb 12, 2010 – Painting A Day Project

Once again, I decided to focus on “historic humans” or rather “western women” today.  I’d like to refine this painting, I think I have her a bit too masculine but….hey, it is just totally practice/experimental….that is what this project is for.  This little painting is actually loosely based on an old photo of my daughter.  Anyone who knows her, knows it really doesn’t look like her.  I wanted to make the character older and to look a little more weathered, suggesting this woman has just come in from a hard day on the farm or ranch.  Sunburnt, dusty, and tired, but happy with her day’s work.  She is one of those women, a kindred spirit who’d much rather be working cattle, riding a horse, or putting up hay than be in the house cleaning or doing laundry
