Description
Im Not A Very Good Cowboy is a short portrait of the artist, dressed in the western-cut suit he often wears on stage and in life. A black and white George frets alone in his chair. He argues with himself, disheartened underneath the big novelty cowboy hat on his head. This $60 outfit is not providing the authenticity he yearns for and self-doubt is starting to set in.
