Original Oil Painting on Canvas Board Western Artist Bill Bender Vintage 1968

This is an original Bill Bender oil panting on canvas board, vintage Feb. 1968, Framed.

We are very pleased to be able to offer for you consideration this original oil painting by Western Artist Bill Bender.

We, Studio Antiques, have a connection to this oil painting. It was painted back in February of 1968, by the well known Western artist Bill Bender, during his travels down in Mexico. Carborca, Mexico, to be exact. This painting was offered as a gift to Bills "Ol friend" Walt Kell. Walt Kell ran an art supply and framing store, that later morphed into and antiques store, here in El Segundo, California. The connection- Our store, Studio Antiques, is Walt's old store, and the current owners, Sally and Laurence Martin, bought the business from Walt over 26 years ago, and have keep it going ever since.

This wonderful painting was done on a 12x16 inch piece of canvas covered artboard. Mr. Bender calls this work a "Sketch" and in the lower left corner of the image Mr. Bender writes " A sketch from my travels - "To Ol Friend Walt Kell" Bill Bender Corboca, Mexico 68. The "sketch" in oil, is of a small shed with a shaded door. There is also the silhouette of a burro standing in the shady side of the structure. There is a mountain range in the background, and through a break in the fence, a dirt road runs from the middle ground to cross from left to the lower center foreground, disappearing into some brush.

The frame is a very appropriate, rustic wood frame, that measures 20 3/8 by 16 3/8 inches, and is 5/8 of an inch deep. This painting weighs approximately 2.2 pounds.

Condition- This painting is in very good condition, and it is ready to display.

If you are a collector of Cowboy, South Western, Western art, Bill Bender is an artist who spent the better part of his life capturing images, and moods of this part of our culture, and beautiful country. Oh, and some of Mexico too.
