I'm a born-and-bred Texan and a University of Texas graduate, so longhorn cattle are a way of life around here. They're so majestic and docile, and I've wanted to paint a longhorn for a very long time. This piece is my homage to everything Texan. This beautiful boy carries a bluebonnet, the state flower, in his mouth...and the flower is adorned with Swarovski crystals to catch the light and sparkle. (NOTE: You do NOT have to be a Texan to fall in love with this gentle soul!)
The piece measures 16" x 20" and was created using acrylic paint on a stretched canvas. The sides are painted black, except for his horns and right-side ear, which wrap around the canvas. It's ready to hang and enjoy right out of the box.
