The Daily Paintings of Don Gray
What interesting variations we find in the land. Makes you wonder what the story is behind this. Lovely painting. Happy holidays.
Hi Debbi--thanks. Nice to see your vibrant paintings again. Merry Christmas to you.
Ah, now here is a familiar sight. We recognize that rusty tangle of the "top strand" of barb wire, that has coiled back on itself. When we are out on our "scout" walks (to find calves), these intervals of fence are easy to spot... as they are much easier to cross. Just heave a leg over, and you are into the next pasture. The game fencing (with small squares), helps to keep the calves from investigating the nearby pastures. We swear that the wild pigs know how to climb the game fence. Don, You always capture these rarely seen images, that represent the eard work and resourcefulness of the cattlemen. Best regards, Craig & Michelle
Hi Craig and Michelle--I appreciate your adding to this post with the kind of first-hand detail that only a rancher would know. Thanks and Happy New Year!
