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 passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
