This was a hard one to squeeze out; I don't normally paint cowboys so this commission took almost 3 years to complete. It started out as Erin's but I assumed responsibility for it when she moved back to Calgary. Still have to fine tune a few areas, mostly on the edges. The figures in the distance were taken from an art buddy's Kispiox rodeo photos and the fellow in front was a compilation derived from several 'found' images.
I'm going to try my absolute best to complete all commissions before moving away next July.
The clock is ticking...
