Day 24: Today I painted a rodeo study. I did two, in fact, with the idea that I will paint a big rodeo scene someday. This was a small, local rodeo that we attended this summer at the V6 ranch in Parkfield, Calif. (which also happens to be the earthquake capital of the world, as it sits astride the San Andreas fault). My husband was enamored with the fact that cowboys could ride up to the beer truck on horseback and order a brew! This is Small Town America at its finest. Anyway, I took lots of action shots with the idea that I would paint them. So this is my first attempt, and I have some things to work out in the next one, but here it is! Size: 11" x 14"
