Since a kid I have always enjoyed wearing “cowboy boots” when I could afford them! Since moving to the American Southwest I discovered that western footwear is an artful expression of the owner as well as utility footwear of the rancher as is the cowboy hat. I love them both. I was immediately drawn to paint this pair of boots and spurs as they had the real wear and look of actual ranch work. “Hats off” to the American ranch and farm families who feed America.

This painting was done to highlight the horse’s headset and the use of the English Pelham bit. The Pelham bit is often used for schooling and general riding. Pelhams are seen on some field hunters, and in the show ring. It is also used in polo and there is a western version of the Pelham bit.

Every “baby boomer” has a number of men that past through their lives that are now memories brought back by this painting. For me painting this image brought back memories of several team sport coaches of my youth and several co-workers later in life. Likely the smell of pipe tobacco stimulates a fond memory of a family member or close friend who favored smoking a pipe. A different feeling arises about a pipe smoker versus cigars or cigarettes. I was surprised when the painting was finished that it stirred such memories and feelings.

The Fiddler

I painted “The Fiddler’ for the reason the image expresses the emotions of serenity and joy. Art for me needs to tell a story but it also needs to express an emotion. This fellow with his common clothing, wild hair and beard is very comfortable in his personal choices of dress and grooming and is playing the fiddle with an expression of joy and serenity. I believe it is our personal journey to learn to live life with “joy” and it looks like “The Fiddler” has mastered it.
