CORRIENTES RESTING / Daily Painting #983

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

These stars of the roping and bulldogging Rodeo events, seen taking a backstage break between Rodeo performances, can be traced back to the first cattle brought to the new world by the Spanish as early as 1493.

One of my favorite films, Pocket Money, starring Paul Newman and Lee Marvin, centers around the hilarious adventures involved in buying and returning to the States with a herd of Corriente Steers for use in Rodeos. The film is based on the book Jim Kane by J.P. S. Brown.

  1. I absolutely love this. I don’t know what the charm exactly is. I think it is the beautiful blues and greens along with the deep darks and the curving lines. Peaceful.
