I See by Your Outfit

August 3, 2016
I See by Your Outfit, 30 x 20, oil on canvas

The title of this painting comes from a line in the song “Cowboy’s Lament”: I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy

This Trompe L’Oeil painting has everything you need to be a cowboy (or cowgirl). First, you have your fringed shirt with a sheriff’s badge. Add your boots, gloves and a scarf signed by the King of the Cowboys, Roy Rogers. You can’t go anywhere without your horse,your six shooter and favorite Dime Novel. Take along your pardner, Howdy Doody, and you’re ready to hit the trail. Yee Haw!
