Urban Cowboys

Mixed Media/Fiber – Size: 48” W x 68 ”L 

In the old town area of Tucson, Arizona, the city has recreated the store fronts and street scene of the old west. It is sometimes used in western themed movies. When I visited there, I got to see these movie actors hanging out waiting for actions. I sketched and photographed them and later painted a small oil painting. It seemed to me it would be a challenge to recreate them more as urban cowboys and incorporate the cubist feeling of shapes. The biggest challenge was keeping my original composition working while I added fabric. Yet, it was certainly a fun piece to create, to find the right fabrics and play with color interactions. I think a little bit of my sense of humor came through on this piece.  Sold
