This saddle was made by the famous Hawaiian cowboy, Ikua Purdy.  The saddle was given as a gift to Mr. Michael Baldwin of Tucson, Arizona when he was 12 years old by his father.  Mr. Baldwin grew up in a ranch called Ulupalakua in Maui, Hawaii where Mr. Purdy worked.

Mr. Baldwin commissioned me to do a drawing of this beloved heirloom.  I took the saddle home and spent several days cleaning it and making shine.  Then I took many pictures to figure out how best to portray this beautiful antiquity.  I took it to a local steakhouse where they have some original antique corral and posed the saddle over the wooden structures.  We chose to present it in the drawing as a simple portrait.  No background or foreground that could take away from the details.

 

"Montura Paniolo"

Esta montura fue hecha por el famoso vaquero hawaiano, Ikua Purdy.  La montura fue un regalo para el Sr. Machael Baldwin de Tucson, Arizona cuando el tenia 12 años de edad dado por su papá.  El Sr. Baldwin se crió en un rancho llamado Ulupalakua en Maui, Hawái donde el Sr. Purdy trabajó.

El Sr. Baldwin me comisionó el dibujo de su querida reliquia de familia.  Me llevé la montura a mi casa y pasé algunos días limpiándola y dándole brillo.  Luego le tomé muchas fotos para ver de qué manera seria mejor representar esta bella antigüedad.  La lleve a un steakhouse local donde tienen un corral antiguo original y la posé sobre las estructuras de madera.  Escogimos presentarla en el dibujo como un retrato simple.  Sin nada en el fondo o en el primer plano que pudiera distraer de los detalles.
