I needed a small piece to display on a table top easel at an upcoming art show, so did this rodeo picture. Only 9 x 9. Tried to stay a little looser with not a lot of detail..

Hope not.. It's a large 3 day Western event, so since I do mostly horses I'm hoping it's a good weekend.

The background color adds such a wonderful excitement to this piece.

Thanks.. well the story behind the background, is I was originally putting in a real background, the rodeo chute, but this paper got slick fast, so in order to save it, I lightly put on some acrylic paint to cover the previous background giving it a solid background which I actually ended up liking a lot as the bull and rider really stood out. Then added some similar colored pastel over the top of it at a slant to give it some motion
