ALPINE LONGHORN 2019

 I purchased this stunningly beautiful longhorn skull from a shop in Alpine Texas. This is a real Longhorn skull, a lot of the skulls you see at taxidermy stores are cow skulls with horns added posthumously. This is a Longhorn, not a cow.  This is a large skull. I cant wait to get started.

 Big Bend Chisos mountains landscape with three grazing longhorns. Prickly pear cactus in the foreground around the snout. all under an 11-color sky with  a rolling cumulus cloud. I used over 60 different colors of beads. This was the first time I’ve ever hand-dyed beads; the light blues near the base of the horns.
