Main Show Room

Size: 18"x24 gallery wrapped canvas
Depth 1 1/2"
Acrylic mixed media on Canvas


I have succumbed to the siren sound of the blogosphere. I’m a Texas artist who will discuss and digress about art and her art life with friends and fellow members of www.Canvasbycanvas.com. We have been on an incredible art journey this past year and my regret is not starting Nancy’s Art Blog at our inception. The painting, Main Street Showroom, has been entered into the Creative Catalyst Summer Art Show. The entry deadline is August 30, 2007 and Ann Baldwin is the juror. The acrylic, mixed media on canvas painting is 18" x 24" on gallery wrapped canvas. The theme is Telling Stories with Art and this is my story about Main Show Room.
Cowboys - Fort Worth – Cowtown - Stockyards - Longhorns ..
All of these words evoke memories of early Cowtown and the old stockyards district is today
a center of daily entertainment and Western-style nightlife.
The Stockyards were developed in the 1880’s and grew to be the largest in the world. Now Exchange Avenue is lined with restored nineteenth-century buildings. Cowboys can be found driving a herd of longhorns through the historic streets each day and we can get a glimpse into our past and heritage. Close by is Billy Bob’s Texas with real bull riding in an indoor arena. It was built in 1910 as an open air cattle barn and now can hold 6000 people for a concert. This north side area of Fort Worth tells a little of the Cowtown story and still has the Wild West atmosphere.
I can hear a “big Texas whoop” from my Canvas by Canvas group.
