Texas Longhorn - Black and White

I have been in a serious painter's block the last month or so. I am feeling better, but am still looking for exercises to strengthen my creativity. Hopefully, the worse is over. This 8 x 8 oil painting is an exercise I did to try to break out of the block. It did help.

This Black and White Texas Longhorn is painted from a photo from a trip I took this spring to with my favorite painting buddies in and around Columbus, Texas. This was an unusual Longhorn in that he allowed me to take his picture. It seemed the Longhorns in the part of central Texas are very shy and really don't like to have their pictures taken.
