One of the main appeals of the American cowboy is his independence and the ability to get the job done, no matter what the conditions or circumstances. He doesn’t wear a three-piece suit, but he is still . . . . taking care of business. In this bronze, Bill is showing a cowboy at work in bad weather, with the bluish-black patina attempting to create a damp, cold feeling. His determined look and straight ahead direction implies that the work will be done!
