Red River Valley: Close-Ups


I'm including some close-ups of my painting Red River Valley (clicl to enlarge).

1) Here's the image of the complete painting. It's difficult to see all the details so I'm including some close-ups.

2) Below are the lyrics. The lyrics are one of the hardest, most detailed parts of my song paintings. It's important for me to include the lyrics because they can differ so much from song to song.

3) Below that is a close-up of the cowboy that "loves her so true." Note in the painting the horses are looking at each other as if they were saying, "Goodbye!"

4) The last close-up is the cowgirl that is leaving the valley. She is seeking the sunshine that will brighten her pathway for a while.
