I'm pleased to announce the acceptance of two new western art drawings into the America's Horse In Art show, sponsored by the American Quarter Horse Association Museum. The show opens August 16th in Amarillo, TX and runs through November 8th. You can see the show and bid online here but even better if you're in the area, why not stop by the Museum and see the show in person!
For more information, directions and hours, contact the museum.
In this pencil drawing I wanted to convey the connection between the cowboy and his horse. The young mare in the drawing was in training and getting some very good experience driving a herd of 50 red angus cows through a wide creek that was about two feet deep. She didn't even hesitate. The cows were another story, but the cowboy and his horse got them moving.
The Sorting Pen is the second pencil drawing accepted into the "America's Horse In Art" show. It depicts a day in the life of a cattle rancher. Springtime is the busy season for cowboys, with a lot of preparation and looking after calves before turning them out to summer pasture with their mamas.
In this scene, a cowboy is working a young horse as well, giving him experience in his training, as he sorts out a group of calves and moves them to a new location. With any luck, the weather will hold and they’ll get the job done in a day.
OUT OF THE GATE WINS SECOND AWARD
"Out Of The Gate" did double duty this summer. After being exhibited in the Springville Museum's Spring Salon, it was shown at the "Traces Of The West" art show at the Pioneer Days celebration in Ogden, UT, where it won the drawing division of the show.
