Buffalo Facing The Storm,IMG_6424 2 copy

As the story goes, when a storm is coming a cow will see it and will run from the storm, therefore having the storm chase it. However a buffalo will face the storm, taking it head on, therefore moving through the storm more quickly. That is what my client told me as he asked me to paint this custom painting. I really enjoyed this process of creation. I had been to Yellowstone Park the previous year and had such a visceral memory of the mighty buffalo. They are so amazing and beautiful to see in person. I am happy to say that my client loves his painting! It truly represents his life and facing the challenges that come his way. A metaphor we can all relate to.
