“Counting His Blessings” – Jack Sorenson
Normally, I don’t care for paintings which feature the rear view of the focal point horse or cowboy. This painting is an exception because I could not think of a better way to tell this story. This cowboy is thankful for the good year he’s had ,and I thought I needed to show his ranch and cattle in the background.
This is another example of using the painting’s title to help tell the story. Had I given it a more generic name like “End of A Long Day” it would have lost the story.
