This piece of thread art is based on a photograph that I took as we branded 200 calves one day at my ranch in New Mexico. This cowboy was taking a break between his turn to rope 15 calves for branding. He had already roped over 60 calves when I took this photo. you can see the rope burn on his finger. As he relaxed, he grabbed a cigarette and casually played with his rope getting ready for his next turn. I love his jacket! It is totally threadbare. Many times, I do not see all of the details in a piece of art as I begin the stitching process. I laughed when I got to the post behind him. There is a cell phone on the post! He is truly a Modern Cowboy.
