|Barnyard Bully Boy, acrylic on canvas, 10 x 8",|
by Tracy Feldman
Just the other day I found a group of old photos and there he was. I still found him visually compelling, but the dusty farmyard in which he strutted his stuff was uninspired. So I painted him, but simplified the background to let him shine. As I worked on him, I realized that he had protrusions under him that looked like they were made of claw material -- which made him look even more like a tough. Thus, the name of the work was born: Barnyard Bully Boy. I hope you enjoy it.
Tomorrow I'll post another small work I did based on the old photos I came across.
As with my other small works, I'm putting my bully boy up for auction in my digital gallery on Daily Paintworks.
