"SIX OF ONE" - New Original Oil Painting by Mike Callahan

"Six of One"

20" x 30"

Oil on Linen

Here's my latest painting. I shot the reference for it at the Cedarville Rodeo in August, there was this line of cowboys that I found intriguing. They were waiting to compete, but I thought that changing the lighting and putting them in a different location would give this painting a bit more charm!

I really like your latest,there' s just something about your work. Putting my finger on just what it is, eludes me. I think the way you make the center of interest so clear, with the background less so.
Just great. Tim

Thanks Tim!
I tried to make this one about the cowboys and the light, leaving everything else a painter, it took me a long time to learn to resist the temptation to detail everything.
