"Waitin' on the Boss"

This piece enjoyed its debut at the "Art of the American Cowboy" Art Show and Sale in Las Vegas, Nevada during the National Finals Rodeo. This is my most detailed work to date, with 500 hours of meticulous rendering. The original is framed with a double mat of black smooth leather and soft grey suede.

"Kim Ragsdale loves horses and people and looks for any opportunity to draw them or talk with them. Her art portrays her love for her subjects, and though she most often works from photographs, she captures something in the faces that doesn't show in the photo. There's an inner spiritual quality that comes through." - a quote from the article "Capturing the Moment", by author and artist Sandy Cathcart.
