Portrait of Legendary Cowboy Clem Gardner riding High Tower.
Pyrography on Basswood with Oil colour 11 x 14
This wood burning is a result of working on the TV series Cowboy Country. One of my responsibilities was to put together the “Trailblazers” segments that highlight influential Western people. When I came to Clem and saw the photo of him in Shirt and Tie and all the energy in the horse I knew I had to burn it. I’m Quite happy overall and especially like the tone shading on the horse.
