Larry Bute western art painting of a waving cowgirl is charming. This classic theme sets a gal atop her horse and motioning to someone unseen, so welcoming, so idyllic. Bute is known for his illustrative western art, and his background as a working cowboy gives his work an authentic quality. The vintage style and subtlety of color are truly classic western. All original acrylic on canvas.
Size measures: 24"L x 2"W x 36"H
