Forever in Blue Jeans
This artwork as a painting of "Forever in Blue Jeans”, as this was originally a pencil drawing of John Wayne as this drawing was done by the artist Quickdraw Conkle from a Cowboys Coloring Book (the coloring book that was published by Bellerphon Books probably between the 1994 and 2008).
I photocopied this pencil drawing from the Cowboys coloring book and decided to erase the gun from his hand, as if to make it more like a real one to show a piggin' string in your hand, which is the real way of how I really do it, as if I wanted it to be the portrait of William MacLeod (the rodeo King of the Ropers and western artist) as I really and truly decided to say that any picture from a coloring book could make a real great painting, which is the real way of how this should be done and also, I really like cattle, horses, cowboys, rodeos and of course, calf roping, because while I was painting this image, I was thinking that it looks like that there is so much color and great distinctive style in this great painting I had ever done of a real professional rodeo cowboy of today and forever, because again, I really wanted people to think that this cowboy William MacLeod in this painting called "Forever in Blue Jeans" is probably one of the best paintings.
When I also painted this image, I was thinking that William MacLeod (I, myself, me) probably ropes and ties just like Joe Beaver and also, the actor John Wayne (a. k. a. The Duke), and is really just trying to chase and rope and tie just like the greatest calf ropers with probably my favorite rodeo cowboy hero by the name of calf roper Joe Beaver, the singer John Denver, the lead singer Richie McDonald from the band Lonestar, the movie actor John Wayne (the Duke), the character Joe Green (from the novel book called "Black Beauty" by author Anna Sewell, too), the movie actor Andrew Knott who plays Joe Green in the movie "Black Beauty" and even of course, the movie actor Ian Kelsey who plays Joe Green (older) in the movie "Black Beauty", as well, too, as if everyone could think I'm one of the best ropers and tiers alive as if that everyone could think I'm also one of the best ropers and tiers alive and still around after the 100th century, forever and ever, and I like to think that right there in this painting, I'm holding the piggin' string in my right-hand to get ready to string my left-arm and practice tying up my left-hand, as if I'm preparing to rope calves at real rodeos and in the practice pens, as right there, I'm just practicing to tie my arm for practice, because I could really visualize and really sense that several photographers, people who videotape with cameras, and also, do great artwork of rodeos, as if over many years of photographing, and also, sometimes videotaping and also, a real professional rodeo cowgirl in the real era that never ends forever.
When I was painting this picture from the coloring book, I called this painting "Forever in Blue Jeans" because it was making me think about why that's what's great about being on a horse as a Western rider and forever in blue jeans as if my jeans of choice, the Rodeo Cowboy in blue.
I painted this image very slowly for four long days to paint it and get it just about right as because of the great effort in the real highlight details of a self-portrait of William in a purple Wrangler western cowboy shirt with a shiny brown leather vest, a navy-blue and white Wrangler bandana, sunglasses and stonewash-blue Wrangler jeans, the way I'm holding the piggin' string in my right-hand and am just getting ready to practice tying, the red, white and blue background with the white lonestar and the writing of "EL PASO TEXAS" to make this painting very flavorful, because this really just looks like another one of my best absolutely realistic images that I ever did as if this is a portrait of me, as if to show that John Wayne (the Duke) was my favorite cowboy actor in the movies and that when I was painting this image, I was thinking of him in my top best favorite movie of mostly "The Cowboys" because it's my top all-time best favorite John Wayne movie of all the time out of the 83 western movies that he had made.
This was painted on Monday, October 2nd, 2017, Monday, October 16th, 2017, Thursday, November 2nd, 2017 and Monday, November 20th, 2017 and this is just a very great beautiful great image of me in my blue jeans forever, because it shows how much I like blue jeans all because blue jeans are also the way to go as the real true done deal for a western rider and of course, a rodeo calf roper and that's what's great about forever in blue jeans as the real true done deal.
Not only does rodeo calf roper William MacLeod still like to keep on capturing self-portraits of himself calf roping in the rodeos or in the practice pen, but has also painted great self-portraits of William MacLeod (himself), as well, too, as that's what's great about portait of cowboy William MacLeod turning himself into John Wayne and likes to be called Will Wayne, Jr. sometimes.
You may think that from looking at this painting of how and after spitting a wad of chew onto an offender, William MacLeod would point out that men and women should only wear jeans in the following color: blue. That real color should come from dust, mud, grass, blood, and water, as that's what's great about forever in blue jeans.
