Featured in this lot is this framed oil painting of a man and dog chasing down two stray cows by Margie Jackson born 1934 and died 2021 circa 2004. The oil painting features a wonderfully and professionally crafted oil painting that features a man walking after his dog while moving two stray cows down a fence line. The artist signature can be seen in the bottom right hand corner along with the date of the artwork. Margie Jackson (1934-2021) was a painter for years before she became a sculptor. Her experience at casting her creations in bronze began around 1976. Jackson lived on a farm in Yelm, Washington, but she grew up in Texas and Oklahoma. Because the range was open and cattle left on their own, they would be prey to packs of wolves and coyotes. Horses were still respected as a means of transportation and the area was plentiful with Native Americans still richly steeped in their own culture, lending to the inspiration of her work. Among her numerous awards are Best of Show-Sculpture at the Celebration of Western Art Show in Olympia, Washington and First and Second places at the 1986 and 1987 Arizona Annual Art Shows. She was commissioned to create bronze and limited-edition prints celebrating the Washington State Centennial; the city of Yelm purchased one of these pieces for installation in the City Hall. The condition of this framed oil painting is good with no obvious signs of damage to the artwork and shows a small wear mark to the top of the frame but otherwise is in good overall condition. The measurements of this framed oil painting are 23" x 30" and the visible art measures 14 1/2" x 21 1/2".
