It's About Time - "Tyler's Buffalo" - Buffalo Painting
I've been married to my amazing husband, Tyler, for almost five years and I just now sat down and made my very first painting for him. It's about time, right? For some odd reason, the American buffalo is his favorite animal, though to me, they just look like overgrown cows. =) Anyways, I've been wanting to do a painting like this for him for some time now, but just couldn't get the courage up to do it. I say "courage" because it seems like all the ideas that I've wanted to do for a long time are really hard for me to finally sit down and do. I don't know if any of you are the same way, but I really struggle with this a lot. And while it's not my favorite painting (in fact, it was one of the more irritating ones I've ever done), I learned quite a bit from it and am very happy it's done.
