18" x24" Oil on Masonite
In the 1800's, a cowboy's bunk was his private corner of the world.
The fellow who slept here was the prosperous owner of a rifle, a shotgun,and a brand new hat.
This was a "do over" of a painting I'd done about a year before this one. The original was done from a black and white photo. Here I've changed the lighting a great deal from the original, and was surprised how much it actually improved the composition, even though placement of the contents was changed very little. Go figure.
