Early Morning on a Ranch

Sketch by Sarah Sullivan of a ranch on an early August morning

Early Morning on a Ranch

Last week we spent a night on a friend’s ranch in Utah. In the morning, I heard footsteps and looked out the window to see our host going out to start his day. It was really early. The sun was on the cliffs but the ranch yard was still dark. Although I went back to sleep, the idea that our host was up and working stayed with me. His dependability matters and it made me think of the many people who work long hours, doing the right thing.

I did not get a photo but did my best to recreate the way I think the sun fell on the rancher, dog, ranch yard, and cliffs.

This gouache and watercolor pencil sketch is 17 X 12 inches and on black paper.
