Buckaroo Bash - Bessie's Bed Cowboy Hat!

Hey, Amigos! I was selected as one of the artists for the 2007 Buckaroo Bash, an Adobe Society fundraiser for educational outreach programs being held at the Eiteljorg Museum.

The Eiteljorg Museum is located in Indianapolis, Indiana. It opened in 1989 and was founded by Harrison Eiteljorg. The museum showcases Western and Native American art and cultural objects. The museum's design is inspired by the land, people, and architecture of the American Southwest.

Here are some rootin'-tootin' facts on this years Bessie's Bed cowboy hat!
Bessie's Bed is a children's book that I illustrated about a bathrobe-clad woman who shares her warm, dry bed with several animals that have been washed out of their homes one stormy night. The author of this fun beginning reader, Terry Webb Harshman, is an ace-high gal from right here in Indiana, too! I am honored to have the opportunity to create a hat for the 2007 Buckaroo Bash!

I love this hat! The Buckaroo Bash sounds like a blast. And I love the story too. How clever you are.
