‘Real’ Life Artwork – 9/18/09

This was my ‘Rodeo Art’ my senior year in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. It was Best of Show in district and got me a scholarship to the Western Art Academy (The Museum of Western Art at Kerrville, TX), a three-week long workshop for 24 students from the greater Houston area chosen for their Rodeo Art and portfolios.

I met this guy at the Rockin’ R steakhouse in Blanco, Texas, while I was eating dinner with my family. By the way, if you ever go through there, you have to eat there. The fillet will be the best thing you’ve ever eaten, guaranteed (especially if you get it black n’ blue)… and that’s really saying something because I don’t even really like meat. YUM. Anyways, I had told my family I was concerned because I didn’t know what to draw for Rodeo Art… and then we saw this guy walk in along with another sheriff. My grandma suggested I go meet him and ask to take his picture… and I did. We had a print made for him and my grandparents met him and his wife for dinner (at the Rockin’ R, of course), so they’ve kept in touch a little bit. Sadly, I can’t remember his name… I’ll have to ask next time I see them.
