Texas Homestead Hill - SOLD

Texas Trip - PAINTING DAY 6
While everyone hunted for dove on this beautiful ranch, I snuck away (far enough away to avoid getting peppered by the shotgun blasts) to a nearby pasture. The broad vista was amazing. There is no wonder why the founding ranchers claimed the top of this hill to build their 1930's homestead out of native stone. I have it's roof just tucked within the trees. Hopefully, it will be the subject of a future painting.
It was important for the ranch owners to oversee their pasture and livestock. A few deer blinds and deer feeders are scattered amongst the mesquite and brush.
