The Horse Wrangler Gather’d The Morning Mounts:
“One That Had’n Lived The Life ... Couldn’t Paint a Picture ...
To Please The Eye, of One That Had!”

by Bob Coronato

Like many kids, artist Bob Coronato grew up fascinated with the cowboy life. When he started to paint in earnest, he sold a painting to a man who thought he was good, but said he would be much better if he knew something about real cowboys. Upon graduating from Otis/Parsons Art School, he moved to Hulett,Wyoming (population 409) finding ranches that still “cowboy” in the old ways, realizing that the west he was searching for as a kid was still there, evidenced by Them’s a Bunch-a Bronc Stomp’n...Sun
Fish’n...S.O.B.’s
.

“I was once part of a brand crew that traveled with a 1880s chuck wagon,” Coronato says of The Horse Wrangler... “Each evening, we would set the horses free to find water and grass. And each morning, before the sun came up, the horse wrangler rode out in the darkness to gather the horses from were they wandered the night before. As the ground started to shake and the wrangler drove the horses over the hill in the corral, I knew a long day was about to begin .... But I couldn’t wait, it was like being part of a special history.”

Buck Norris—Crossed Sabres Ranch
by James Bama

“Wyoming, the Cowboy State, conjures images of wide open spaces, cattle ranches, wild mustangs and rugged men in boots and Stetsons,” says artist James Bama.“I had known Buck Norris for many years, he was a strong, quiet man who worked with his parents, owners of the oldest ranch on the North Fork of the Shoshone River west of Cody.The day I finally visited this cowboy and trapper to use him as a model, it
snowed three feet. With the snow filling up the corral around him, he carried the tools of his trade: a leather saddle fitted with saddle bags, fringe-decorated bridle, coiled lariat and silver-dollar size spurs.These, the clothes on his back, and, of course, his horse, were sometimes the only possessions a cowboy of the Old West owned.”

Scouting the Long Knives
by Frank McCarthy

In artist Frank McCarthy’s Wild West his subjects often appear as heroes in action—riding
hard, looking good and, inevitably, living to fight another day.Whatever the subject—Indians,
cowboys or cavalry—there is often a commotion or disturbance going on. Leather flying,
guns firing, sabers slashing through the air, wind tossing horses’ manes—this is the action
packed West of Frank McCarthy.

In Scouting the Long Knives, an Apache is concealed behind an anvil-shaped remnant of
an ancient red sandstone formation, spying on a column of cavalry and supply wagons.
Known to the Indians as “long knives” because of the long sabers they carried, the U.S.
Cavalry patrolled immense areas of the Southwest. Sometimes the patrols were out for weeks
at a time, with little or no sight of hostile Indians. But the Indians were always there, scouting
the scouters. In a land that seemed so empty, there were always eyes that watched and waited.

Thunder and Dust
by Bonnie Marris

The wild plains horses in Thunder and Dust are the quintessential example of what makes Bonnie Marris one of the finest wildlife artists working today. Combining passion for her subject with mastery of color and composition, Marris' paintings embody the drama and energy of pure wildlife pleasure. “One of my favorite things is to watch horses run,” Marris says. “They run for the joy of it and the love of their own speed, with each horse racing to win. I really wanted to show speed as a glowing, powerful feeling, through bold color and bright light. I feel the point of view in the composition really captures the thunder of the rumbling ground that would accompany such a spectacular moment.”
