"Long Day" - Original Oil Painting by Mike Callahan



"Long Day"
36" x 16" oil on canvas
My good friend Dennis McCroskey is the model for this painting...he's the real deal and this is from a photo he provided...at least the cowboy is, I shot the clouds that I used in the background. The unstable weather that we get on the Eastern side of the Sierras yield some pretty impressive clouds from time to time.
