I’ve been AWOL for a month. There’s been so much going on here at the Ranch in preparing for winter. We’re doing pretty well and that’s because we neglected everything but those priorities. Then I looked at the website for the 2015 Annual Red Bluff Bull and Gelding Sale and saw that one needs to enter the Art Show by no later than November 3rd. So that galvanized me into action and I finished the saddle painting that I’m going to enter. I’m calling it “Buster’s Old Saddle”. It’s an oil on canvas and it’s 48 inches tall by 24 inches wide. It’s nicely framed with a wood frame that picks up the warm tones of the piece plus a carved wood motif that’s reminiscent of rope. I’m very happy with it. It’s going to be for sale at the Bull and Gelding Sale for $1,500.00.
