The Old Cowpoke

Several years ago I made a painting trip to Jackson Hole and it was a glorious adventure.  While eating dinner one evening, I took this photo of a real cowboy having a drink at the bar.  A few days ago I located the photo and did a studio painting.  Most artists make quite a few changes when painting from a photo.  I left out a figure on the right but may paint him in a future painting.  The background is definately abstracted--it is not as important as the figure but I did try to show there were much happening in the background.
