1136. Cattle Ranch

I didn’t go out to paint for long time.

I love to paint early morning. cooler than afternoon, in a location with fresh air, without much wind, and good lighting.

The grass is all dried, turned golden. I discovered recently I love smell of dried grass, a kind of sweet fragrance. 

When we cycle to play tennis, we pass this cattle ranch, often many cows and caves graze on grass. 

But when I went to paint none of them were there. This ranch is huge, other side of the road is same owner’s ranch, maybe they moved cows there.

At first I was disappointed without cows, but really enjoyed painting there with fresh air, birds singing. 

When I finished, I felt silence infiltrating this painting, the feeling was just like after meditation.
