Angus Bull

Oil on board, 5" x 7"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.

I came across this big fella while out driving the farm roads the other day. He glowered at me while I skidded to a stop and I knew immediately this was the pose I wanted. I snapped a quick photo out the window and jumped out to take some more. By this time he had lost interest and was ambling toward the cows that were keeping him company. I yelled and banged on the pickup trying to get him to stop and look back again, but he was so through with me--I didn't even get a sidelong glance.

That bull does not look pleased, Don!

I guess he must know what his fate will be!

I love the color choices here. The purples on the bull's hide were unexpected and not something I would've thought of doing myself.

That's why I like it so much!

That is a beautiful bull. He doesn't look like he wants to be petted.

lol you nailed his attitude. My husband saw 2 eagles this evening.....loftily floating past him. He took great plaesure in telling me!

Hi Dean,

Well, he shouldn't be grumpy. As long as he's "productive" he is fated to be surrounded by a harem of lovely female bovines!

Thanks for the nice note.

Thanks, Bill. No, I don't think he's the cuddle up on your lap type. But if you want to scratch him behind the ears I'll hold your coat.

Hi Micah--thanks. Are those birds ever going to sit still for you? :^)
