In my early days, I loved Western movies: Gene Autry, Durango Kid, and yes Roy Rogers. Well, I finally decided to bring Roy to life in my studio and here we see the results. At first, I was somewhat curious where this might go, but as with all my works, I'm there for my own inspired joy. Like a fairground ride, let's do it.
Fun to paint him in a way I remember: Roy Rogers on Trigger rearing up. Also, I knew I'd better concentrate getting Trigger right because I've not painted many horses. Here, looking it over, I'm happy. I was totally enthralled portraying this iconic cowboy and can see the energy that stayed with me to that last dab. Harley
