I was very inspired by the saddle museum in Sheridan and all the different kinds of ropes. I got a lot of ideas for future artworks. I was impressed by the prevalence of cowboy hats everywhere.” Above: Tumbledown, 2014, Enamel on acrylic laminate on board, enamel on wood, dimensions variable Right: Neutral Luck Cat, 2014, Enamel and silkscreen on acrylic laminate on board, 41” x 42”
