Between blogging and book inspiration I’m always coming across all kinds of cowboy pictures. If something strikes me, I’ll tuck it away in my cyber file. Sometimes I use in blogs, or for cover inspiration–every once in a while a picture will fit a character that’s been bumping around in my mind. Sometimes the right picture can inspire a character. I do love a pictures that asks questions. While picking through my picture file, I figured it would be fun to share some of my favorites, and the thoughts or twinges that make the pic a keeper.
This one is at the top of my list–the ultimate cowboy mailbox. Saddle height 🙂 Reminds me of a time when nothing was wasted, and those sturdy containers were recycled as old-time Tupperware.
This one is called Christ and the Cowboy by Kenneth Wyatt — I found it while looking for a graphic for our Inspirational authors. This is a make-me-smile pic, gives me a sense of calm. It’s also the cover his book containing poems and paintings
I love this image–check out those leather cuffs! The bullets, the detail, just love this kind of imagery. Sorta makes ya think villain, don’t it? Or…maybe not 🙂
This is where my Western Muse lives. These images are just the kind of visuals that can send my mind spinning into a book, weaving all kinds of scenarios.
Makes me think of a cowboy’s solitary life on the trail, and the dangers he’ll face along the way. While he’s watching over his herd, he’s hoping he is being watched over as well 😉
Okay, how CUTE is this lil’ cowboy??? Wish I knew where I nabbed this one.
This? Pure classic. Doesn’t get better than John Wayne. Saddle, rifle, trusty cow dog–what more does a real cowboy need? Well, a heroine of course 😉
This one here isn’t a cowboy pic, but it’s a favorite and sure makes me ask questions—tickles the mind, don’t it?
