This painting was inspired by a car sketch and Frank Reaugh. I often execute small ACEO trading card paintings and sketches while Pam is driving us around. We were exploring the Point Reyes National Seashore and I made a small painting of three cows. We also went to see the Frank Reaugh exhibit at the Harry Ransom Center on the University of Texas campus. I took that small painting and what I learned from the exhibit to create this piece.
