I know I've been talking a lot of "bull" lately. What I mean is that I finally finished the longhorn for the Southlake Stampede - http://www.southlakehistory.org/stampede.shtml. These "longhorns" are part of a public art project celebrating the 50th anniversary of the city of Southlake, Texas. A call to artists went out last year and sponsors were rounded up to choose from the many designs submitted.
My particular longhorn, Steerway to the Arts, celebrates music, dance, theater and the visual arts. I created it specifically for the developers of the new arts center that will be built in Southlake and will serve the entire north Tarrant county area. The proposed arts center, APEX Arts League, will be built by Newland Communities http://http://www.newlandcommunities.com/profile_aventerra.php/. For more information on APEX - http://www.apexartsleague.org/
My longhorn is still in my garage but will soon join the colorful herd that can be seen grazing around the fountain at Southlake Town Square - http://www.southlaketownsquare.com/ and other locations throughout this lovely city.
Now, I can finally get back to my regular painting!
