We wanted to let you know what we have been working on this summer. We have researched and studied how to create a coloring book with our Western Lifestyle Photography! Today we are releasing our “Cowboy Coloring Book: Central Montana Ranches” and so excited to share it with you!
AND, we hope that you will share your artwork with us by tagging #cw_cowboycoloringbook !! We can't wait to see your artistic artwork made from pages in this book.
This isn’t your typical cartoon type coloring book…no, these are designed for you to create your own western lifestyle artwork.
The photos in this book were captured by Carla E Photography while she visited two ranch brandings in Central Montana; the Delaney Ranch and the Hanging T Ranch. She has chosen a small select group from those ranch photos for this book and turned them into grey scale coloring artwork. The grey scale keeps the textures and shadows that will add depth to your coloring. She has also artistically added some hand drawn line work to assist in defining the subjects where needed.
We hope that you enjoy hours of relaxation while you create your own western masterpieces! The framed artwork is just under 8”x 10” in size. This size was chosen so that you can cut them out and frame them, if you so desire!
Whether you are a youngster, or just young at heart, we hope that you will enjoy awakening your artistic talents to this new way of coloring.

In order to catch you up to speed, if you are just joining in, I want to let you know about my personal project. My faithful companion, Rider (a gorgeous Australian Cattle Dog) and I, have been traveling on an Adventure, for a few years now… following the Central Overland Pony Express Trail.
Carla and Rider at Round FortRound Fort is between Ibapah and Callao Utah. It is also called Canyon Station. The Pony Express Canyon Station was further West of here though... This rock fortress was built the year after the Pony Express had ended.
Currently we are working on a Photo Journal, that will be an Ebook, with our personal experiences on the road. I started this journey, due to a visit to Fort Churchill, with my family in 2014. I read how it was built to protect the Pony Express Riders and the California Emigrant Trail. I have always been fascinated with the old West, and that of course included the Pony. On that day, surprised to find such a fortress still standing, I wanted to know if there were more! The photos I have captured, of these gems in the desert, will be in a Photo Book/Coffee Table Book. There will also be some History of the Stations, Station Keepers, Hostlers and the Riders.
Very naively I started this journey with the thought that the Pony Express "Auto Route" would drive me conveniently near all the ruins... Well, that was silly, and now I know better!
Please continue to "Ride Shotgun in Spirit" with us as we visit Historical Places along the route, and visit many Museums that house Archives of the daring young, and some not so young, Riders of the Infamous Pony Express!
Occasional we will also share with you many of the other sights seen along the way while traveling through California, Nevada and Utah.
We have decided to stop the book and journey for the time being at Salt Lake City, UT for a couple of reasons;
There are 3 more Divisions from Salt Lake City to St. Joseph Missouri. Lord Willing, we will make a book Two!
We are so blessed to have YOU to share this Journey with us.
