"The Horse Wrangler Gather’d The Morning Mounts:'One That Had’n Lived The Life ... Couldn’t Paint a Picture ... To Please The Eye, of One That Had!'”

Like many kids, artist Bob Coronato grew up fascinated with the cowboy life. When he started to paint in earnest, he sold a painting to a man who thought he was good, but said he would be much better if he knew something about real cowboys.

Upon graduating from Otis/Parsons Art School, he moved to Hulett, Wyoming (population 409) finding ranches that still “cowboy” in the old ways, realizing that the west he was searching for as a kid was still there, evidenced by "Them’s a Bunch-a Bronc Stomp’n...Sun Fish’n...S.O.B.’s."

“I was once part of a brand crew that traveled with a 1880s chuck wagon,” Coronato says of 'The Horse Wrangler...' “Each evening, we would set the horses free to find water and grass. And each morning, before the sun came up, the horse wrangler rode out in the darkness to gather the horses from were they wandered the night before. As the ground started to shake and the wrangler drove the horses over the hill in the corral, I knew a long day was about to begin . . . . But I couldn’t wait, it was like being part of a special history.”
