Working the Wells Ranch

See the rope-hinged gate? Wonder why the need for it? In remote areas of a ranch, old corrals still see use for branding. In this instance, most of the fence railings could be fixed easily enough, but not the gates. What was at hand were plenty of ropes so a makeshift gate was made. And actually, it was sturdy enough to last through several seasons.

Painting available for purchase at Settlers West Gallery – Call 520-299-2607.


September News

I’m so excited! I am featured artist in two shows this month. Arizona’s Phippen museum chose me feature artist for their show and all my paintings sold, and now Wyoming’s Big Horn gallery is featuring me in their show opening September 20. It coincides with the big show at Buffalo Bill Museum. This is the first year I am in that show so of course I will be attending both!

Thank You

Thank you to Settlers West Gallery for including my painting Working the Wells Ranch in their ad on the back cover of Western Art Collector Magazine!

About Sheila Cottrell

Sheila was chosen 2014 Honorary Lifetime Artist Member by the historic Mountain Oyster Club in Tucson at its 45th annual Western Art Show. A love of old west history and particularly her family’s lives in Texas in the 1800’s and then early Arizona inspire most of Sheila’s paintings. The Wells clan arrived April 18, 1900, in 7 covered wagons at the abandoned Fort Bowie in southeast Arizona. They set up homesteads throughout Sulphur Springs Valley and freighted ore between mining towns, ran the Wells Brothers Overland Service, operated one of the Indian trading posts and quarried stone for the great old Gadsden Hotel in Douglas. R G Wells became a deputy sheriff in Tombstone and had numerous run-ins with horse thieves and rustlers. Sheila says, “I enjoy painting anything to do with the west, past and present, but especially love illustrating the tales of pioneering adventures my family experienced.”
