Tried a landscape, not my favorite...

good old Texas cattle in the old west.. ramshackle buildings, rusty roofs.. old cistern in the back.. make shift fence and gate.. thinking I should stick with portraits..:) Well, you have to try new things and larger things occasionally.

This is taken from an old black/white photo

She was sitting on the porch with her grandparents and momma about 60 years ago, the wind was blowing her hair.. the colors of the dress I made up.. looks nice in a gold frame.. ahh, memories..:) fine details were sketchy at best, but she was captured..
