About Bob Coronato
I used to open books and look at the “Old West” photos and see cowboys riding the open plains, and I would stop and think, “I wished I lived 100 years ago”. I no longer have a wish to be part of the old days, but have become part of the west I was searching for. We are at a clash of two times where traditional cowboy’n ways are being overridden by the modern technologies. The “west” of the late 1900’s will be looked at as the last of the era that was frontier. My focus in painting is to try and document moments in time that show the ways of an admired but fading lifestyle. The freedom of the west and wide-open spaces has become a symbol of our great country. As our lives become more regimented, rules more numerous, we long for the places of freedom.
