Olaf Wieghorst
My Favorite Olaf Wieghorst Painting of the Week

 Cutting Horse

A cowboy riding a Bay horse fills the canvas foreground as he gallops left to right across a dry rocky range. He swings his lariat as his horse kicks up a cloud of dust. In the middle ground is a herd of brown cattle the cowboy is drivng. A cloud filled bright blue sky and low distant mountains complete the composition.

From a 1943 painting titled: "Cutting Horse"
Oil on canvas, 24x 28 inches

Olaf Wieghorst painted around 1600 oil paintings, 3-5000 watercolors, and who knows how many drawing and sketches during his life time. I love them all. Each painting tells a story to me. I have hundreds of personal favorites and will be sharing a new one each week. If you have any comments on a painting or have a special favorite you would like me to post, please email me.
