What stories they could tell! About the cattle round-ups, Or the dried up well. An' the broncos in the morning, That'll buck you just for fun. At nite you pull them off again, Another day is done....
The above image is titled "If They Could Only Talk". The original oil painting was completed by Al in 1961.
Al Shelton loves horses and most everything that is related to them. In fact, Al was a cowboy & horse breaker in Colorado and the surrounding states in the 1930's & 1940's. Al has a special gift with horses and was able to tame them for domestic use with good success. However, more than one spirited horse crossed Al's path during that time and he has many fond memories of these experiences.
The above fine art Giclee print shows a cowboy's well worn boots and hat along with an original poem by Al that give the artifacts a voice.
This print is available unframed and in both limited and open edition sizes.
