my bad,

another post not totally related to art,

but i’ll connect it, don’t worry 🙂

last night i went to the lewiston roundup (rodeo)

with my boyfriend and a couple friends.

rodeo is something that i have not written about on this blog yet.

for those of you who know me, it should be a surprise.

since i was 10 years old i have breathed nothing but horses.

i bought my first horse at 15, had a second one by 17,

and now keep my mom’s horse at college with me.

i learned the ins and outs of barrel racing when i was 15

and fell in love with everything rodeo!

since i’ve been in college i have not raced.

i’m a poor college student afterall!

so going to the rodeo last night was bittersweet.

all throughout high school i was determined to go to a college to rodeo.

i could have,

but i was drawn to my university which recently lost its team.

i kept thinking,

i could be doing this right now!

but life isn’t far.

hopefully i can get back to racing once i graduate in may.

until then however,

i can surround myself with rodeo through art.

at the roundup there were multiple prca photographers

(photographers that work for the specific rodeo company).

i could do that!

if i somehow figure out how to afford all of the nice equipment…

so maybe i can’t be a pro photographer right away;

i can paint or draw though.

i remembered a piece that i made for my mom in high school.

it was a pastel drawing of a barrel racer.

nothing spectacular,

but it was fun.

i have not made rodeo art since then.

maybe now is the time to explore that avenue

and reconnect with something that i am so passionate about.

and because it’s gameday: GO COUGS!
