Cool Cowboy Contentness

"The Lone Rider"
watercolor (12" x 12")

Today's painting is a larger version of an earlier painting I have done....I remember when I took this photo...
This cowboy seemed so very content...
and I suppose who wouldn't be, strolling along the nature path on horseback? 
Yes, I believe I would have a "contentness" about me too.  
But then I realized I was content too...being in the same place with this gentleman,
just was minus the horse (and cool cowboy hat).
I would like to find that "contentness" independent of me exercising on nature walks, hearing the birds chirping, river flowing nearby and being in the sunshine. 
Do you have that "Cool Cowboy Contentness" in your everyday life?
