According to Paul F. Starrs, “A watchful eye from an old hand is directed at a steer, moving slowly across a dusty draw. In fact, the prevailing sense of this fine painting is dryness—a prevalence of alkali and a sense that water is a distant afterthought, which won’t be seen for several hours more. Borein spaces the protagonists correctly; you don’t get in there and crowd, you allow an animal the illusion that a course of action is the most reasonable and the easiest, and everyone goes to the next spot without feeling being mussed.”
