Really nice. I like the way the glove stands out--maybe like you're tipping your hat to a strong work ethic.

Wonder if this portends what will later be called "John Cox's Blue Period"? :o)
Very nice shading effects in there as well.

I thought I could get across a realistic, maybe a tad romantic, idea of a working rancher.
I've worked alot in monochromes. I thought showing a dusky blue early evening was a good start for this idea.
It is true....there was a short time where I just did these blue compostions. I'll try to post them later on.

The carpentry that went into the bench I'm sitting on.
The livestock I'm watching.
But, in the house is my family.
That too will draw my devotion.
Though I might rest, I am never too tired.
Marvelous piece John.
