The Longhorn Extravaganza

"Pushin' 'em Thru"
24 x 60

In September I am headed to Oklahoma City to show my work at "The Longhorn Extravaganza".  I've been working on art for the show. I will have about 35 pieces on display, including painting and sculpture. This is a larger piece that will be featured there.

I hope to see a lot of people there.   This show is right up my alley seeing as my favorite era is the old timey cowboy, 1880 to 1925. There abouts. 

It would be great to hear any feedback or interest from folks. I know that opinions are like (you know what), but I would like to know yours.
