Western art is well known for the stories told in the paintings or sculptures. Often these stories are filled with humor, as are many of my bronze sculptures. This cowboy is roping calves for the branding crew on the ranch where he works. A little bull calf has decided to take a shortcut under the horse to find his mama. The cowboy’s horse is spooked when the calf runs under him, takes offense, and “the wreck is on.” This event is not so humorous to the cowboy, but the onlookers watching the tables being turned are enjoying it.
