Using my own life's experiences as the canvas for my work.

The City of Fort Worth puts on a cattle drive for the tourists twice daily down at the Stock Yards.  It is a lot of fun to watch.  The longhorn cattle are beautiful if not a little scary.  I watched two youngster animals locking horns in one of the pens earlier that day.  It looks like they only allow the more senior citizen animals to get near the crowds without a fence between them.  The cowboys are all good guys.  They’ll stay and chat with people  as long as they want and will make their horses bow down so that kids can pet their heads.
