About this Art:

Cattle need salt. In the summertime, when they’re out on the range, the cowboy must carry salt to the cattle so they can have as much salt as they need each day. The cowboy loads his pack horses with blocks of salt, made especially for the cattle. This particular cowboy is hauling the salt to the cattle. This painting is a little bit of a play on words because I always like to think of the people that raise our food off the land  as the salt of the earth as well. They add the savor of a simple, hard-working life to the world we live in. What they provide is necessary and also gives us a sense of solidity in a mixed up world.
