Artist's Description

*A cowboy rests beside his steed
With thoughts about this rodeo
He gives his friend a bowl of feed
And wonders if he’ll win, place, or show

As thunder rumbles towards the west
Skies darken with the failing light
He dons his hat, his chaps, his vest
And only thinks, “It’s rodeo night!”*

This is a digital painting inspired by my nephew, Travis, a true urban cowboy.

He lives in one of the biggest cities in the US, but is as much a cowboy as those of western lore. He has been competing in rodeo events since he was 15, and does everything from riding to roping to bull riding. I can remember when he was very young taking him for rides on my horse when he would come to visit, and the thrill that it would give him. Now it is he… that gives me the thrill!

UPDATE

A few years have passed since I created this artwork. Travis, the subject in the artwork, is now a full-blooded
cowboy and works on a ranch in Wyoming. He holds quite a few nice belt-buckles from his wins in roping, buck-back, and bull riding in several rodeo events over the past several years. I am so pleased to see he has found a way to make a living doing what he loves to do!
