“The Saddle” (24” x 36” original oil on canvas) is my first in a series of saddle paintings that I painted in 2007, when we first purchased our art gallery in Stephenville, Texas.  The interesting thing about this saddle was found out after I had painted it, when the original saddle maker, Steve McLauchlin, from Decatur, Texas, stopped by our gallery.  He informed us that he had originally made this saddle for Ted Kyle, from Qanah, Texas, and had tooled a K on the back fender, with a smily face, next to it.  He had designed this saddle, to fit one of Ted’s rope horses.  Later Ted had sold this saddle and horse to a cowboy from Graham, Texas, who was roping at the Lone Star Arena, in Stephenville, where Peggy took the reference photo.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with the name of Ted Kyle, he is the father of Kelly Kyle, who who married the legendary Lane Frost, who was the World Champion Bull Rider, who was killed, in competition by a bull, at the “Grandaddy Rodeo”, in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1989, at the age of 25.  Luke Perry played the role of Lane in the famous movie 8 Seconds, that has become perhaps the quentessential rodeo movie of all time…  This painting is simply called “The Saddle”…
