TIRED COWBOY is an original 24" x 20″ ( 60.96 x 50.8 cm) oil painting on canvas, framed in an ornate wooden frame with suede inset. I wrote a story for each of my paintings. As I painted this one, I was reminded of the days of cattle drives in the 1800’s in America.
This is dedicated to my great-uncle, Jesse who lost his life at a very early age, looking for adventure. He joined a cattle drive and was killed in a gunfight. I still remember the picture he had taken and framed for his parents, before he left. My brother has it now.
For years, it hung in my grandmother’s front room. One day she told me about it and I wrote the story. A frameable copy of it will accompany this painting for your enjoyment.
Painted in 2011, this painting has been museum sealed and copyrighted for authenticity. It is framed, backed, ready to hang with appropriate hardware to be enjoyed for many years to come.
