Cowboy Up by Kay Wyne
Cowboy Up Contemporary Oil Painting 24" x 24" on Gallery Wrap Canvas
This painting was inspired from a photograph that I took of my nephew, Casey...taken about a year ago. He was getting ready to ride in a competition, and my camera caught him putting his chaps on. He need alot of help because they were very tight, and had to have two people working on those chaps. The rodeo arena was in the background, but I wanted it to be abstract and only a suggestion of the fence and the ground. I used oil sticks and oil paints with my wide brushes. I had alot of fun with this painting, and I might start a cowboy series. I love this month's subject matter!!! Thanks for viewing. Kay
