I know this is far from what you were expecting to see on today's post but "End of the Line" is a memory painting for more than one reason. The cow skull reminds me of a time I was with my sister, Karen, riding in Nevada from a ranch we were visiting to the closest neighbor's ranch five miles away. Instead of following the road we headed out through the mesquite. We were on good working Quarter horses and they were feeling frisky and eager to go. On the way we found a cow skull and I got down out of the saddle and scooped it up to take home in my suitcase. Can you imagine what the TSA would think of that today? My sister and I were both in horse heaven that day and painting this old cow skull has brought back memories and made for "A Painting Day".
