I have only a passing interest in Wild West Art, but it is easy to see that Frederic Remington's Bronze "The Outlaw" is the favorite of many. My piece is fused fabric using ideas taken from Pablo Picasso. I was out the door to go fishing in Idaho - grabbed a bag of scraps, my sketchbook, etc (no sewing machine) and my computer. After a quick stop at Walmart, I was ready. But by the time I got to Jimmy Smith Lake, I had no internet access. So, I had to improvise a bit on the cowboy because I couldn't remember what he looked like! It was a challenge - would have liked a wider array of fabrics. I used tulle to create shadows on my whole cloth background, but when I tried to fuse the pieces down, I couldn't use a hot enough iron or the tulle would melt. At one point I resorted to glue.
2. Explain what the piece communicates to you.
3. Give a 'what if' statement(What if you had used blue instead of red?)
