I painted this from a 5x7 old photo. The man on the left is Tex Hunt and the other is Neil Petitt. Taken sometime in the late 50's (note the hat style). The picture tells a story. These guys used to enter roping contests throughout the region in Northern California. Tex is my cousin's grandfather and we used to go to his ranch on weekends. He is the first man that ever put me on a horse.
