The Cowboys Last Ride
This work depicts a pile of a cowboys old gear, piled in the corner illuminated by a single light source. The beauty of the scene goes hand in hand with the deep, dark shadows of the candle. In many ways this piece shows the end of a cowboys life, a once bright candle, hard working and good natured, overshadowed by the results of a long life; whether it be death, illness, injury, or even the loss of work due to the quickly growing urban society pushing out the old ways.
