Since I'm a Western Bronze Artist.. I'm always on the look out for reference material. You just never know when your going to come upon a bit of good reference.
Today, after getting back from Bozeman, I stopped at the local grocery store here in Ennis and saw a cowboy go into the store. What caught my eye was the great hat he was wearing.
As I walked to the store I saw his saddle in the back of his truck. I ran back to my van and grabbed my digital camera and shot these photo's.
That is a ranch jacket tied on the back of the saddle.. I may use this for a future piece. Always carry a camera.
