Acrylic Herdsman Rescue


This is the third version of this picture, and the first in an acrylic.  One was a sketch on a  legal pad, and the second was the digital version of it.  This last version is as different from them, as they are from each other.  

The interesting thing is, what started out to be a Remington style painting, ended up being more in the style of French Impressionist.  I hope you enjoy this acrylic as much as I do.  The quick backstory is this, a little calf, scared and alone, thinks he’s lost in the cold Montana winter.  Until the Herdsman, after searching for a couple of hours, finds him.  
They both make it back to a warm fire, and families that love them.  Now, they have a connection, bigger than they did before.  Our relationship with God is wonderful from the onset, but it deepens, as we snuggle in to His arm, knowing He will bring us safely through all our winter storms!
