As promised on May 24, here is the first peek at the commissioned oil painting spoken of in two previous blog posts.
Cowboy Bert told me he has a shirt that color. I said, “It’s called wheat”.
He said, “That don’t look like wheat to me.”
I said “It is wheat as viewed from the back of a fast horse.”
He said, “I’ll buy that”.
When cowboys say “I’ll buy that”, it doesn’t mean they plan to purchase an item. It means that they agree with you. It is the cowboy equivalent of city folk saying “Word”.
Aren’t you glad I am around to explain the English language to you?
And, in case you are wondering about this painting, remember the commissioner/client/customer/friend/drawing student said she loved “loosiosity”.
Bet you can figure that word out all by yourself!
Any other words you’d like the California artist to ‘splain to you?
