Cowboy photo becomes the inspiration for an acrylic painting

An acrylic painting by Kerma Boyum-Sarmiento of my cowboy photograph called "Braving the Rain."

Kerma Boyum-Sarmiento, an artist who grew up in Havre, Montana and attended Havre public schools, recently licensed one of my cowboy photographs called Braving the Rain so she could make a painting of it. You can see the results above...a 30" x 48" acrylic painting she made on deluxe canvas.

Kerma, now a resident of Marina del Rey, California, said she took a long hiatus from painting following college and about the same time she started her own medical transcription business. After retiring in 2015 Kerma resumed painting again. She sells her paintings from her home and has her work displayed in shops throughout the greater Marina del Rey, California area. She also has a few items on display at High Plains Gallery at The Atritum in Havre.
