Trail of Painted Ponies "Bunkhouse Bronco," 1E/4,780.
The original bunkhouse was a rough, simple building, often fashioned from the wood boards torn off old barns that provided sleeping quarters for ranch hands. Horse tack, wagon wheels and cow skulls were frequently tacked to weathered planks on the outside, while Western hats and ropes hung on the inside walls. Adding cozy ambiance, the whole place would smell of coffee brewing in an enamel pot on a wood-burning stove. Working these classic cowboy touches into a fabulous Painted Ponies design, this gifted Oregon artist has created an old-timey ? yet timeless ? tribute to our Western heritage. Based in the Pacific Northwest, Lynn is primarily a wildlife artist whose unique painting techniques and finely detailed multi-media artworks are prized by collectors across the country.
