If the title of the painting and the honey-colored glow didn’t tip you off, then cowboy’s relaxed sit on the horse might say it all. Day is done after a hard day’s work.
“I started off in my art career with figurative work,” says the artist. “I love painting people and wildlife, and Western scenes are a mixture of both. As a child, I watched old Western TV programs and cowboy and Indian films with my grandfather. His favorite trick was to find things like light bulbs in an old cowboy show…things that shouldn’t be there. My Western scenes are in contemporary settings but really the lifestyle and purpose of the work is the same as it was 150 years ago. The work is physical, and the serenity at the end of the day is well earned.”
