From my desk looking toward the stair railing. Unfinished paintings lined up on the side and2 of my saddles on the rail. The one with the lariat I inherited from my grandfather and have had and used since I was a kid. It is an old Association saddle with the high cantle and deep swells. I love it. It is probably close to 100 years old.
Hanging on the stairway is a Moose hide and there is an elk hide on the stair railing.

I 've got to hand it to you, you have guts. I hope the fire marshall isn't one of you blog fans. Just kidding Gary, very functional. Just Curious, what does Vicky think about it?

Took your studio tour.... what a wonderful 'studio' space you have created. All the 'treasures' an artist needs ... and so well organized!
Now I must research 'Association saddle' and find out what that might be.
Thank yo for sharing your 'space'. A most enjoyable read.

Hi Gary, thanks for sharing your space. Really - because it kind of makes my space look better (ha, ha!) All I can say is thank goodness for other messy artists. I can put my finger on anything - until I go into a cleaning frenzy and then can't find a darn thing! But, only because I fear it is becoming dangerous to walk in some areas (!!) I'm gradually and slowly cleaning my studio/library and office areas and my clothes closet.
Love the story of your saddle, and I'll look forward to some bird paintings soon!
