Some friends of mine, Lorene and Lyle from Cheyenne, posted a picture of their niece and her horse Buttercup online. From the moment I saw the photo I knew I had to paint an image of the two rodeo athletes. Having my trusty camera with me at the rodeo chutes doesn't always guarantee an inspiring image to paint from. Photographs also lie. I always have to correct for some distortion or perspective warp when I draw from even the best of my photographs . This snap shot had all of the right action I look for in making a good painting, action, authenticity and good models!
