Not the usual...
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...

To achieve the 3 cowboys must of been a challenge, 3 different perspectives. I love horses but know that it will a long time before I will ever be able to do horses justice. I'm still painting Eileen and enjoying it . Miss your classes and the social time together with other inspiring artist. You will be greatly missed !
