To be a cowboy, or ‘buckaroo’ as they say in the Great Basin country, is most suited to the younger single man,” wrote the artist. Ballantyne cited the historic Hispanic inspiration on the contemporary cowboy, “My subject is a picture of our modern day buckaroo with traditional vaquero influence: colorful, proud, practical and classy.”
