When I was younger I spent some in South America. While I was there I worked for a few days on a cattle farm in the La Pampa. They taught me how to ride rode on horses similar to these without any saddles. Just as the authentic "Gauchos." We gathered up hay bales, fed the cows, and even branded some of them. It was an experience of a lifetime.

This is the first stage of the painting, the "underpainting."
