Here, a buffalo stares outward with a soulful gaze. This painting is one of those works in which the subject’s eyes seem to follow the viewer from left to right. The buffalo is created with blues, purples, blacks, and browns. The colors marble together in ways that appear galaxy-like in certain areas of the painting. The organically marbled color is offset by light peach and yellow line work which creates both soft and hard angles and shapes. The yellow and peach colors are mirrored by the colors of the background, and an overall color balance is flawlessly achieved. The scruffy hairs hanging from the buffalo’s chin give him the appearance of a lyrical old man—born with rustic roots but full of spirit and vibrancy.
