Cowboy with Black Hat















Oil on 6"x8" panel. This painting was inspired by a photo that my son Tyson Ritter shot when he worked for our local news paper.

Rachel you inspire me to do some more realist/impressionist paintings. This is a very lovely and sensitive portrait.

What a lovely portrait. I really like the colors you used, and brushstrokes, and the way you cropped it. His expression is vivid, too, and contagious. Nice.
