Original cowboy art by award winning Nevada artist Larry Bute. Known for his illustrative western art, Larry Bute titled this piece “Watching the Herd”. This scene is typical and classic, a group of riders have come up to the mountain meadows to spot the herd. The mounted riders stretch and pat their horses as they break from riding, briefly. Truly a beautiful and sizable piece. This western art piece is framed in barn wood. Oil on hardboard.
Framed size measures: 53″L x 26″H
Award winning Nevada artist, Larry Bute’s western art painting is almost synonymous with the landscape. Traveling throughout Northern Nevada his work can be seen in almost every town by way of murals, and etc. Although Bute grew up on a farm in the Midwest, he took a job as a ranch hand in Colorado as a teenager and stayed on to attend the Colorado Art Institute. Following his education, Bute was hired on as an illustrator for the US Department of the Interior, but spent his weekends rodeo’ing. As a young rodeo cowboy, Bute had an opportunity to draw illustrations for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, drawings that were used to help standardize PRCA judging.
