Gathering Adobe Pasture 24 x 36 oil
Trailside Gallery's Fall Open House
October 16th 1-4 pm
Gathering Adobe Pasture was born from a scene I had the opportunity to view last spring. The cowboy in the foreground is Toby Foote, who works for a neighboring ranch and helps on roundups. The two men in the back are Jay Runston and Hugh Campbell, who work on other ranches but "neighbor" during fall and spring works. Our son, Brooks Cameron, runs cattle in Adobe pasture which is located on a family ranch south of the Grand Canyon. It is predominately flat country covered with brush and grama grass. The animals kick the powdery red dirt as they move. It rises, permeating the atmosphere, transforming it into a dusty rose color that gradually fades into the blue above. The grass in this country is strong and cattle do well. Brooks is the fourth generation of our family to run cattle on this ranch.
