My photo
Photo circa 1947, I always wanted to be a cowboy! Whether working for a short time on the historic Hansen Ranch in Jackson Hole as a young man, just out of the service, to working the stock at the Jackson Rodeo, it nurtured in me a love of the American Cowboy. From my home in Dubois,Wyoming. I look forward each spring to roundup time with my good Friend, John Sides. On his 20,000 acre cattle ranch in South Dakota, each year we relive what ranchers and cowboys have done since cattle were introduced to the west. Little has changed in a hundred years and the experience and camaraderie is all cowboy. The period of 1820 to 1880 on the western plains was the most colorful in American history. Unfortunately, I was born too late to experience it first hand.

"Insurrectos " finished?

I added a couple more shadow figures but still not happy with it. This may never see the light of day. Maybe I need to darken the sky?

  1. O K You need to get to painting or out to Dubois so you can find time to do so. You are missing wonderful winter weather. wind cold and snow. Even I who love winter weather am winter weary.
