Ride the Range Fabric

In 2006 I went on a family trip to a dude ranch. My parents, my sister and her family, my brother and his wife and my son and I. We prepared for our adventure by buying cowboy hats, boots and any western gear that struck our fancy before heading into the hills of CA to see what adventures awaited us!

I quickly learned that the cowgirl life was not for me: apparently I’m allergic to horses and had a major allergy attack within hours of arriving!

I was able to participate in the camp fires, square dancing and of course making memories with my family. While they enjoyed the horseback adventures I was happily taking photos and making art. Sketching the scenes in watercolor didn’t make my eyes water or make me sneeze and inspired my Ride the Range Tara Reed art collection.
