Working The High Mesa
Artist: Scott Rogers
Have you ever given a job to someone and spent the next hour, day or week wondering whether it would get done?
Have you ever given a job to someone and rested easy from the moment the words came out of your mouth? You knew the job would be finished ahead of time.
What type of feeling do "you" give off? This one takes some serious self examination.
I love the subtle clues in a piece. You'll have to hunt for a few here. The time period can be determined from the type of hat he's wearing and by the make of the saddle. The reins are the macate' type (anywhere from 20 to 50 feet long). Notice the snake hide on the back of the cantle (rattlesnakes have a natural glue that adheres like iron when they dried). Many cowboys would kill a snake - skin it - and stretch the hide over their cantles. Ever heard of slobber leathers off a bit? They create leverage for the reins and provide comfort for the horse. Notice the hog nose tapederos. They will give you an idea of the type of country this cowboy is working. Ever noticed that your old timey cowboy never rode with canteens?
This is fun. I enjoy putting things in a piece that teach, reveal, and explain the who, where and why. I like to have folks own work of mine and discover new things years after they have owned it.
