This photo painting series began with the gathering of material for rodeo paintings at the Galisteo Rodeo in Galisteo, New Mexico, and the Baca Brothers Rough Stock Rodeo in Belen and Bernalillo, New Mexico. The photographs and the paintings feature actual cowboys at rest before and after performances. The photographs were printed on Arches Watercolor Paper by master printer, Pat Carr of Carr Imaging in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
