53rd National Show Catalog, "No Place Like Home"


This painting is one that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I wanted to capture the look of deep thoughts in this boy’s face and have the viewer ask “What is he thinking?” There is a poem by Amy Potter called “Give A Boy A Rope” which tells a story of a boy growing up with a rope in his hand starting at a very young age until he’s an adult. These are lessons learned through learning how to rope, and be successful at it. Long hours of practice, many roads traveled and many “If I would have just done that,” that lead us through life. I grew up with a rope in one hand and a paint brush in the other, really the lessons are still just about the same!

SHERRY COBB-KELLEHER • WAOW Associate • CO • sherryspaintedhorsestudio.com Growing up, some of Sherry’s earliest memories were watching her mother and grandmothers paint. They patiently taught her how to look at the world with an artist eye by tapping into her abiding love for animals and life well-spent working the land. Being born and raised on a ranch in Colorado gave Sherry the intimate knowledge of her subject. She continually seeks out the moments that “tell a story of the animals and people” that inspire her.
