George Boutwell’s


Painting completed in: 1991

On the day Martha and I found our ranch, we first looked at the house and then went down to the barn. I walked inside, turned around, saw this scene and said to Martha, "There's a Painting, just waiting to be painted!". For unknown reasons, I doubt I'll ever understand, this painting waited almost seven years to be finished and definitely improved with the wait. Some things are always better if they are done today and then there are others that are always better done later, but deciding which is which is the problem. One of the precious lessons I've learned from life is that clear ideas usually work and vague ones rarely do!
