Don’t Fence Me In

These illustrations have four c’s : color, contrast, composition, and cowboys! I found them in a much loved book for children,  ‘The Book of Cowboys’ by Holling C. Holling, 1936. Holling and his wife collaborated on these, thus the signature ‘The Hollings’, and what a fortunate coming together of the minds it was.  Lucky for us.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
