This is a pencil drawing of mother and son cow dog [healers] combo taking a rest in a cattle loading chute during a branding in southern Utah. Belonging to a good friend of mine, these amazing dogs loved to work and they were good at what they did. Both have since passed on but will never be forgotten. In the drawing of this piece I used composition to try and lead the viewers eye through the wood grain and back to the dogs in an effort to prolong the viewers interest.
