Bravado is a non-commissioned portrait of a real cowboy, actor and artist, Andy Humble. Many painters have tried to depict the soul of Andy on canvas. His unique combination of rugged villain who is tender-hearted and misunderstood is difficult to capture, a task I'd happily take on a thousand times. A statement of determined defiance in the face of life's twisted and often cruel events that are out of our control, "Bravado" is my attempt at a portrait of cowboy life at it's core.
