During my 35 year career I have been known for my wildlife and landscape paintings. This year I was inspired by my friend, Fred McClanahan’s photo of a memorial ride at last year’s rodeo. I was so touched by the video and the photo that I decided I needed to paint it. My goal has always been that my paintings remind people of an unforgettable experience, and this year’s painting is no exception. I hope this painting reminds everyone of the Harry Vold tribute and the many great rides they've watched at “The Daddy of ‘em All”. I am most proud of my 31 years with Trailside Galleries, 12 years with Broadmoor Galleries and many terrific shows.
