Art of the American Cowboy

by Nancy of nancyrosetta

Early this December, my father was honored to be the featured artist in a show in Las Vegas called Art of the American Cowboy. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the show and see all the amazing artwork. His artwork is featured in their banner and signs!

Here is Dad with his wife ChaCha and my husband Scott, along with a variety of his framed paintings. His booth looked amazing.

Along with all the artwork on display, there was a rodeo...right in the resort! It was the first rodeo I have ever been to that was inside a building. Pretty spectacular.

And this waiting/practicing area was also INSIDE the resort! My vantage point is from above looking down from a window. These people all looked very nervous getting ready for their chance at a portion of 4.2 million dollars in a roping contest. Of course the horses looked completely at ease. :)

Even though I went to this event to support my fathers artwork (and him), my favorite piece was from one of his horses that he had on display in his booth. A testament to his sense of humor and his horse's mighty tongue.

I'm so glad that I could attend this event in support of my Dad. He and my step-mother were so glad that we could be there and that meant the world to me.
