Joe Bob – Patron Saint of the Old West

By Scott Freeman

I love self-conscious western kitsch. This probably stems from my childhood family
vacations to Canon City, Colorado. My distant cousin was a “real cowboy”, and ran a working ranch there. Some of my best childhood memories have to do with being “out West”. And Boy Howdy, here I am again! This piece was, I think, an excuse to make cowboy art. Joe Bob hangs on the wall, and is, of course, one-of-a-kind.
