Horse gear original art painting by Nevada artist Dan Howard. This piece is titled "Traditions", and is a bit of a history lesson. This beautiful scene takes place maybe in a missions courtyard, with horses sporting horse gear appropriate to the historical context seen in the shadow of the arched doorways. The history of the American buckaroo seen in through equipment with a nod to the line of succession: conquistadors, vaqueros and buckaroos.
With a Pop-Art sensibility, Howard's western art is always accurate from the standpoint of working cowboys and wonderfully, whimsical to the eyes of everyone. A real life buckaroo manning a ranch in the Nevada desert, Dan Howard's western original art is autobiographical.. Acrylic on canvas.
