A jeep ride up to the top of the ridge behind the ranch house climbed almost straight up toward the big sky, where a line of free-range cattle, who appear as the size of toys, suddenly enter from stage right and cross a triangle of ridge, disappearing over the other side. Two huge pairs of wings spiral in wide circles as eagles ride the thermal draughts in the endless blue sky overhead and to the left. This is vast space in a small painting.
