Texas Longhorn

When I paint longhorns I can't help but think of the man considered the Dean of Texas Artists, Mr. Charles Franklin Reaugh (1860–1945).  Reaugh was a prolific painter, mostly small works, of unsettled regions of the Southwest and longhorns were a favorite subject of his. Many of his pastels and oils were "plein air" paintings from around Wichita County, where I grew up.  A true Texas renaissance man.
