Top Hat in the Rain


This product is sold out


16" x 20"

My father took this photograph of a bucking horse on a drizzly day during the Cattlemen’s Days Rodeo in Gunnison, CO.  After I had painted it, my father told me this horse is Top Hat, a former bucking horse of the year and he was probably one of the most photographed horses in rodeo.  After doing some research on him myself, I realized I had probably painted him before from photos I had taken at Frontier Days and other PRCA rodeos.   So far, I have found at least five different paintings of mine that depict this horse.  It’s almost like a “Where’s Waldo” game now as I look though older works and photographs.
