Texaco sign

TEXACO SIGN
Pastel and Colored Pencil on paper
16 x 20


This abandoned building is located near Round Top, Texas.  What function it once served is hard to determine but as it stands now it serves someone as a storage building.  The windows are boarded up and in the midst of the dull grays and greens and peeling white of the small wooden structure is the bright green and red of this old Texaco sign.

In Harness



IN HARNESS
Pastel and Colored Pencil on paper
16 x 20

I saw and photographed this beautiful horse in harness at a Fourth of July Rodeo Parade in Vale, Oregon in 2009.  He was part of a team of two matched bays and the pair of them were coming down main street and I was able to capture the image that became this Pastel and Colored Pencil drawing.
