Bill Pickett

I just finished this pastel on matte paper which will be shown in a gallery opening at Wester Groves Christian Church on January 16,2012. I will be showing other illustration I have created with a theme of slavery and civil rights. This image is based on a photograph I took ,in Fort Worth, of a cowboy portraying the life of cowboys like Bill Pickett. This Fort Worth cowboy looked and dressed like Bill Pickett. Bill Pickett was born in 1870 and became a legendary cowboy of Black and Indian descent.
