I have had the opportunity to meet ranchers in different parts of the country. I see the ranch family as a working unit. In this painting the young man is learning the art of roping. I love seeing kids take on the ranch life challenges and I love seeing their parents right there with them. The kids get a lot of support and seem to love learning ranch chores to earn the respect of their elders. Old time values still run strong in the rancher's life. Watching ranch kids made for, "A Painting Day".
