"Show Ready" is a collage-like composition with a central silhouette of a cowboy figure holding onto a rope. The cowboy is in profile with iconic Western attire, including a wide-brimmed hat. The silhouette dominates the right portion of the piece, while the left features various layers of imagery and color. A patterned background with diamond shapes fades towards the right side. The left side of the work also includes depictions of cattle in shades of orange and blue. The colors are vibrant, contrasting greens, blues, and oranges against a lighter backdrop that appears to be textured or weathered, adding to the rustic feel of the piece. It evokes a sense of the Old West with contemporary artistic methods.
