Every cowboy needs a dependable "pardner," and this western art print showing a father-daughter rendezvous indicates that there's important business happening today on the ranch. "Game Plan," by June Dudley pictures a yellow-raincoat-clad rancher with his young daughter and her trusty four-footed sidekick, surveying the herd. June Dudley's paintings are what she calls "poetic landscapes." Known for her use of color, lighting, and subject matter, Dudley's works are valued for their fresh, down-to-earth life approach. This work may reflect some of her own history, as June was raised as a cowboy's daughter. "One of the shows I was in had a Rick Jackson bronze in it which reminded me so much of my dad," writes June on her website. Dudley remarked to Jackson that her father was "just a cowboy," and she was promptly reprimanded. "No, he is not JUST a cowboy!" countered Jackson.
Today, Dudley relishes the blessing she had to follow her dad around their 4,000 acre ranch not just as an onlooker, but as an assistant. If this painting is partly autobiographical, it suggests that she may have also served as apprentice, pal, and partner.
This piece includes two solid-colored 3-inch mats with a brass plate title and a v-groove top mat. Acid-free sealant protects from fading.
This great print is the perfect western art piece for any father or daughter who ever loved working together on the ranch.
