"Looking for Greener Pastures"

5" x 7" Gouache on Illustration Board

I'm just guessing that this gentleman has either been laid off or is "getting out of Dodge" for economic reasons.  Cowhands were unlikely to give up a paying job without good reason.  Losing the job or going broke working at it are two good reason to pull up stakes to look for something better.  Looks like to me that he is heading further West.  Maybe California or Oregon or someplace where the grass is greener.
