Invitation to the Rodeo

Pastel and Colored Pencil on paper
16 x 20

This image might also be called "Coats of Many Colors" for the assortment of Bays and Chestnut horses, with one Palomino and one Appaloosa on the fringe.  This picture records the same event as in "Rodeo Riders" and is of a group of Junior riders who rode from Houston to Schulenberg. Texas to deliver an invitation to attend the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.  I liked the graphic quality of the image and the colors, the bright blue on the horse's legs and the same color contrasted with the black vests on the rider's clothing.
