David Stoecklein's "Cowgirl in Heaven" Horse Print captures a golden moment in the life of a modern cowgirl. She relaxes in a tub of sun-warmed water while her beloved mount shares her relaxing time. David Stoecklein, a renowned photographer of the American west, has created another in his series of unforgettable scenes in the mountain country of the American west. The cowgirl has shed her hot and dusty clothing. The scuffed boots are placed neatly beside the water tub, and her travel-worn jeans and shirt hang on a convenient pole. But like true cowboys – and girls – who never take their hats off (well, almost never) she wears her wide-brimmed Stetson as she revels in the mountain spring water of the pasture’s horse trough. Her horse is a sturdy pinto, resembling the wild mustangs that still roam the American west in herds. Many modern Westerners have captured and tamed these wild creatures, finding them lively and reliable mounts. This one seems to be eyeing its happy rider with interest, relaxed and waiting to see what happens next.
Stoecklein started his photographic career creating Western outdoors views for major advertisers in national magazines. But while completing these work assignments, he realized the spirit of the west could and should be documented. As a result, his photographs of cowboys, cowgirls, horses and ranch scenes have filled galleries and private homes with the magic of the American West.
David Stoecklein - Cowgirl In Heaven - Horse Print is available in a 36” x 24” art print. Like all Stoeklein’s photographic art works, “Cowgirl” is as vivid as the day it depicts. The view is printed on medium weight paper. It is coated with a special finish that blocks the fading which at times dims the colors of lifelike prints. The result not only captures the colors of nature, but represents the meeting-place of unforgettably fine art with down-to-earth affordability.
