Ditto (About the Love)

Then because I really feel best when I’m drawing I decided to work on a project I’ve had in mind for months. One day a few weeks after we’d been here we went to the Lazy K colt sale over by Chowchilla (don’t you love that name! Pronounced just how it looks.). There were a host of colorful characters there and I serreptitously snapped a few shots of terribly interesting faces. I saw this older man that I instantly fell in love with. He was with a younger man (his grandson?). They both had the same hats on. I was dying to go up to them and ask who are you you’re both beautiful and where are those hats from but I chickened out.

The photo I took, of course, was so, so bad but it had enough information for me to figure stuff out. I guess that’s the bennies of doing this for so long that you can know what is supposed to go where and you can put it in. The way is now in the DNA.

My dad said it just has to be convincing. I think this is. PS just so you know I’m actually going to put a little more work into his coat and the back ground but not much. His face is the interesting part.

    He looks like a character here…I’ve always wanted to photograph and if I do I’ll know you’ll see what I’m talking about. I love this.

    Good Morning Renee,
    I found your blog through Ben Hewitt’s blog. I love your art. Do you sell your pieces? If so, how do I inquire about a few I’ve seen here? I am interested in purchasing one for a gift.

        Hi Renee,
        Charley Cat or The Fox are my 2 favorites thus far. Is there a more complete site to see your work?
        You can reply to my email address if you wish.
        David

        I have a few pieces on Fine Art America and they do reproductions which are a lot cheaper than originals. The color on the reproductions is not a good as the originals but is worth it depending on your budget and uses.
