I did, for years and years. It was my coming of age town. #backintheday
And interestingly enough, I never painted a horse. (a staple in western paintings). Always wanted to, just never got around to it. Note: "just never got around to it" means "to scared to try" in artist speak.
Fast forward to now and I decided to suck it up and paint a horse. I had so much fun, I decided to paint another. My Tucson roots are showing in the rodeo themed painting. There was a great bar, called The Buckskin that had steer wrestling out back every Sunday and a great wooden dance floor. #cowboyslovetodance #goodtimesforsure
I think there are more horses in my painting future. (even if they don't fit the tropical profile)
