Hi there, my name is Dallas Mayer. You may wonder how my name came about. Well contrary to popular belief, I was not named after the city! My parents knew a family in Idaho with two beautiful children long before I was born. The children’s names were Zane and Dallas.

Oklahoma City, is where the Cowboy Artists of America, 48th Annual Exhibition is on show, at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. My husband, Jim and I saw the show last weekend. There is a new artist work that I had not seen before. His name is, Jason Rich, he is a darn good artist. He lives in Utah, but grew up in Idaho. Another artist that I enjoyed is R. S. Riddick. He painted a cowboy out riding line through a bunch of blooming chamisa. His cowboy is featured surrounded by a cloudy sky with big puffy clouds. I love this painting.
