Watercolor painting of a mounted cowboy driving a large cow to a desired location, 9" by 12" (13 1/4" by 16 1/4" in inexpensive frame), signed at lower left "R. FRANCIS" and inscribed on reverse "To Alan, Christmas '72/With Love/Candy & Bob". I do not see an obvious listing for an artist of this name, but the work should be appealing to those seeking western art. The backing board is from Pasadena, California so it is logical to assume the artist was from the Los Angeles area.
