This piece is my latest of my western series that I am creating. For this series I am planning on having a variety of works on paper and a variety of works on wood. So far creating this series has been an incredible experience. I have had the opportunity to stay on various ranches and see what it is these ranchers do.
I wanted to do an idyllic image that represents a cowboy in a western town, like steamboat. For this series each piece is a piece of my childhood. From going to the Rodeo to playing on friends ranches, these drawings involve some nostalgia. The stark white background of the works on paper bring that element out a little more than the wood tends to.
