August is growing to a close but September will continue to swelter by the feel of things. We're in the midst of hurricane season and so far so good, not one of them has touched land yet.

I've immersed myself in this triple panel acrylic painting of four Mexican Charras (rodeo riders) putting their horses through their paces. Their costumes seem terribly cumbersome but provide a flash of vivid color as they stream past in a cloud of thundering hooves and dust.

I enjoyed this project although it took me a while to get it right ... I must have worked the background over at least three times before settling on the current combination of hues and texture.

This measures approx. 54 x 36 inches including all three panels, quite large actually with impact. Anyone interested in purchasing please contact me here. On to the next ... will post again soon. Cheers, E.
