The Ox, a worker, embodies qualities of strength, permanence and patience.

Humans have used oxen to plough fields and raise crops, to carry provisions and possibly to become food itself.

The Ox is an animal of all seasons enduring as all other animals through all seasons.

My painting on the Ox follows the cycle of seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter that flow one into another.  The Ox is accompanied by other animals and plants as appropriate to the design.

I painted with acrylic paints, Gamblin and Utrecht brands and applied the Golden’s mineral spirit acrylic varnish.
