Working on the TV series Cowboy Country had a strong influence on my wood burning. Part of the show profiled several Western artists and told their stories. While much of the artwork is amazing I think I was most influenced by the passion and spirit of the Artists.
In terms of composition, my goal for Long Ride Home was to depict a scene that spoke of nostalgia and work ethic. I chose to use oil color more prominently than usual because I wanted the warmer colour to liven up the wood burning. Yes, it was a hot dusty day, but at least the sun is out!
