Storm Brewing

I came across a photograph of a painting I did for the Ontario Rodeo Association which was one of their year end awards for Bareback Bronc Riding in 1988.

The Challenge (see my posting on 18 September 10) was the original pencil drawing submitted to the ORA for their approval.

In the final painting there are 15 figures in the background, 13 along the fence, one in the announcer's booth, the mounted flag man and a pick up man waiting for the horn to sound to help the rider off the bronc.
