"Music by Kelvin MacKay"

This artwork as a painting of "Music by Kelvin MacKay”, by the rodeo King of the Ropers and western artist William MacLeod.

First, I looked at a illustration of the picture from the coloring book of the cowboy playing the guitar that was originally drawn and illustrated by one of the different artists from a "Over the Shoulder coloring book" (the coloring book of cowboys and Indians that was published by Whitman Publishing Company in the year of 1950).

First I had printed the illustration from the coloring book and I decided to paint this image of turning this cowboy into my uncle Kelvin MacKay and and also put strings on the guitar and a capo on the top of the guitar (just encase he would use it to change different chords and sounds), as when I was painting this portrait of turning this cowboy into Kelvin MacKay, I was definitely thinking he was making great music on the guitar so that is why I wanted to call this painting "Music by Kelvin MacKay", as the music by is accompanied by a man playing a guitar. I had also painted this image for two days in approximately in July of 2021 as well, too.

This is even featured in "What A Cowboy!" book.", as this picture should show that when it's nighttime around the campfire, a cowboy can play his guitar after supper and sing some good cowboy songs.
