The Horseman

This little painting was a lot of work……but
I wanted to do it; there’s something irresistible about cowboy gear. What is it?….the extra long fringes of these chinks? the distinctive indigo blue of denim, which is the absolute compliment to the colour of the chaps? the silver conchos on his spurs? the horsehair macate? the sunshine and the dust? A lot of it is associated with the magic of being around horses, and the mere sight of all these things evokes a lifetime of pleasurable memories.  I’m just so glad there are young men & women today who continue to value the time honoured traditions of fine horsemanship.
