My Love of Western Art
I am a local artist, and have been going to the Stampede for the last 56 years. I have always had an interest in the history of Calgary and it's surrounding area. My love of western art and painting horses inspired me to paint the attached scene from yesteryear.
I came across a photo from the Glenbow archives of the City of Calgary from 1886, and created this painting of what it might have looked like if a cowboy came though downtown to herd his cattle to market.
