One hot summer Saturday, we packed up the parrot and the dog and a thermos of coffee, then headed out for a drive to see wildflowers. The flowers didn't disappoint, but, as many such adventures play out, we ultimately happened upon a small herd of longhorn cattle.  I forgot my quest for wildflower photos. This longhorn intrigued me. While other animals grazed the sunny grasslands of the Marfa highlands above Pinto Canyon, this fellow languished in the shade, moving only to swish away flies. The play of light and shadow called me to paint this as a landscape with wildlife in it, rather than an animal portrait with land as a backdrop.

 I did this painting in my studio, from a dozen or so photo references. (I assured the longhorn his check for modeling is in the mail.) The sanded terra-cotta surface of my paper allowed me to paint many, many layers of color in this summer landscape, while letting the warm colors of the land bleed through all.​

from the original 12" x 9" pastel

Verified Archival Materials Used

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.

Description from Merchant:

We want Lindy Cook Severns art to last for generations. All prints, whether open editions or uniquely embellished remarques are done on with archival (acid-free, non-reactive) ink and papers and matted in acid-free matboard. Original art, from the smallest drawings and watercolors to the largest oils and pastel paintings are done on archival surfaces. Lindy uses the highest grade pigments in each medium. Light-fastness of pigments is further protected by covering all but all paintings in artist grade UV protective glazing, whether glass or acrylic. Conservation framing on original art means no reactive materials come in contact with the artwork, so all tape and backing boards are acid free and create a barrier for the artwork.
