Painting inspired by my photography of cowboys

A painting by James Geddes inspired by one of my photographs.

Recently I wrote about how painters often contact me to use some of my western photography as the inspiration for their paintings. The most recent artist to contact me is a gentleman by the name of James Geddes, of Yacolt, Washington. His most recent work (seen above) is based on a cowboy portrait I made of a gentleman cowboy from Cleveland, Montana a few years ago. He calls the painting Clancy.

Here is what the original photograph, which I called True Grit, can be seen below:
