Art Review - "Chance of Rain" by Grant Redden

 Here is one more painting at the Briscoe Western Art Museum's "Sons of Charlie Russell: Cowboy Artists of America" exhibit for this week's #MuseumTourTuesday. The show is on view through Sept. 5th.

Grant Redden does a beautiful job of capturing the action in this piece. What I personally love most about it is the way the reflected warm color in the belly of the horse connects it to both the ground and the shirt of the rider. These colors also make the entire subject leap forward from the intense complimentary blue of the sky. That thick paint texture in the chaps of the cowboy is reminiscent of Frederic Remington's work.
