The Cowboy Camp

This is a stunning panoramic landscape from the Delaware Mountains in Culberson County in West Texas.  Guadalupe Peak is seen in the background.  The foreground features working cowboys resting in camp at the end of the day.

Culberson County is one of the most remote and sparsely populated areas of the United States.  Ranches in this area are routinely ten's of thousands to hundred's of thousands of acres.  The ranches are worked today much like they were a hundred years ago . . . by cowboys on horseback.  The cowboys live on the ranches, sometimes sleep in bunk houses, but often out on the range. 

This portrait shows a common scene in Culberson County.  Working cowboys in their camp.  The foreground of the painting is along the rim of the Delaware mountains, with Guadalupe peak seen in the background.  The painting shows the landscape in August, which is the rainy season for this high mountain desert area.  The land is dry and brown most of the year, but with the late summer rains the land comes alive, and remains green for a short month or two.
