When an Artist goes to the Stock Show

Its Stock Show time in Colorado!! This is usually a time when we have the coldest weather of the year. This year the cold weather preceded the Stock Show. What has remained the same is the Stock Show parade which begins this commingling of city folk and country folk as they ooh and aah over all the livestock which enters Denver.

Rhythm and Pattern
Among all the jubilation for the old and the new West you get to see, parades, rodeos which include a Mexican Rodeo Extravaganza, a chute-out Bull riding event, dressage events, Draft horse and mule events as well as the creme de la creme the elite jumping horse event. Now that just takes care of the horses (but not really because I didn't name about 50 other equine related events) this show is definitely about the beef as well as the pork, lamb, goats and chickens.

Texture and repeated pattern
