This wild bronco ride was captured on film in 1932 in Pinedale, Wyoming. It was Bump Boedeker riding. He was the father of a friend who is now deceased. By the late 1950s, the photo was know in that area to be one of the best dynamic photos of all time, showing a man breaking a bronc. This wonderful, one-of-a-kind painting was created on archival hardboard in 2008. The painting is 18″ x 24.” The frame is 28″ x 34.” It truly is a pleasure to view. I especially am fond of it because I use to break and train horses in Dubois, Wyoming when my friend was the cook on the Red Rock Ranch.
Boedeker Butte was named after him or his family. It is located several miles north of Dubois, Wyo, just above Bog Lake, an area where I also created oil paintings.
