Bob Moline is a Comanche Indian and cowboy who spent time working some of the ranches of West Texas as a young man. He earned a living for thirteen years as a saddle maker at a ranch while teaching himself to be an artist.
Working as a rancher not only gave him an understanding of the west, ranching, and cowboys, but he was able to study the physical characteristics of horses, cattle, and the landscapes that surrounded him as well. He paid close attention to the clothing the cowboys wore and the saddles and equipment they used. He was a close observer of the physical detail, the actions, and spirit of the west.
The art of Bob Moline tells stories both of the western cowboy life and times past.
Bob now lives in Fort Worth and is devoted to his work after becoming a full-time professional artist in 1973.
He won the coveted Randy Stephen Award in 1978, and at a show in Louisville, Kentucky the Governor commissioned him a Kentucky Colonel of the State of Kentucky. Bob has many other accomplishments, most recent is “Texas Cowboys”, a coffee table book illustrated by Bob Moline.
Bob works in oil, acrylic water color, pin and ink, pastel, and sculpture in which he is noteworthy.
