About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

JOCKEY


"Jockey"
6" x 9" Mixed Media Drawing on Antique Dictionary

A good friend asked me to draw a "Jockey" dictionary page a few weeks ago as a gift.  This friend has a special love and interest in horses.  She sent me a bunch of different photos of the same man on different animals wearing different shirts and caps.

When I finished the artwork I asked to know more about this particular man and was amazed at his story.  He is quite the famous quarter horse jockey and just recently announced his retirement.

I have created a lot of different occupations on dictionary pages and am especially honored to have made something for this man.
