I made it up to Oklahoma City, to see the Prix de West. I thought it was a great show, and I spent hours enjoying the great art on display. I especially like evaluating composition, and checking out techniques. It was at a Prix de West that I first saw Curt Walters work in person. And his work inspired me to start painting The Grand Canyon. Now there are many artists that inspire my path in art, but of course it is the scene in front of you that inspires the most! I do suggest that if you are not able to make the show in person, then check it out online at www.nationalcowboymuseum.org . I had a lovely time and was able to make the day of it with a friend and 2nd double cousin, Debra. We shared about family, life and the artwork.
