I was born in Texas, about 2 miles from the Gladewater Rodeo Grounds, and later my family moved only a few blocks from the grounds. At times we walked to the rodeo on those hot June nights. The lights were bright... the crowd was loud... the cowboys rode the beautiful horses. They gave away shetland ponies all saddled up and ready to those lucky (or unlucky) to have the right ticket stub number. My dad loved the rodeo. I loved horses.
As a child I drew horses and dreamed horses. My other loves at the time were art and photography. I would draw in the margins of my homework and sometimes get in trouble. I got a little plastic camera that took horrible photos (probably me rather than the camera). But I was hooked.
After a divorce and struggling to make a living while raising my beautiful daughter, my freelance art and graphic design took me to Macintosh computers and Canon cameras. Then later bigger Canon digital cameras. And more rodeos. And three horses. It always goes back to horses, art, and cameras. I can still draw but with my camera I can instantly capture that beautiful animal in the golden evening sun, or breathing steam after a wild run on a cold winter day. The patient horses waiting for their time in the roping box at the rodeo.
