Im forever grateful to my friend Tom Bews for helping me get it right. From such things as the stance and gait of the horse in a particular circumstance to the way a cowboy, well, kind of oozes cowboy! They say that Tom Bews has forgotten more than other people know about western horses and their riders and that he shares that knowledge freely. If Bews plays a apart in helping me capture the essence of my scenes, we should all be grateful. The painting was a gift and hangs at the Bews ranch house in Longview.
