Table and one empty leather chair. Quill..jpg

"Table and one empty leather chair. Quill."

This artwork as a painting of "Table and one empty leather chair. Quill.”, by the rodeo King of the Ropers and western artist William MacLeod.


First, I looked at two different watercolor artwork images from the ending credits of Bonanza that were originally done by the artist Joe Messerli.


First I had shown and pasted the leather chair and table and decided to make some changes be similar and a little different, as if based on the Joe Messerli image and felt like I wanted to paint a picture, you'll notice there is a blank piece of paper and only one paperback book of "Rodeo: An Anthropologist Looks at the Wild and the Tame" by author Elizabeth Atwood Lawrence on the table, as if to show that it is my favorite book to read and carry with me for travel and other places (as it's a great book to read about rodeo of mostly just calf roping and saddle bronc riding, that all came from ranch work).
