Ticket to Ride by artist Mary Luttrell delivers the thrill of the rodeo that can last a lifetime. The powerful acrylic gives the viewer a front row seat to the 8 second ride that's frozen in time.

SANTA FE, N.M. - eTradeWire -- "Like many rodeo spectators, I'm especially drawn to the thrill and danger of bull riding, says artist Mary Luttrell, "The bulls themselves are impressive and beautiful powerhouses.The riders and audacious clowns are both admirable and brave. Who can take their eyes off this quintessential rodeo event?"

Mary says, "I paint the American west because that's where I've lived for most of my life, and I value its history and culture. I love to explore the unique relationships between people and animals in modern western settings. I've owned horses, a burro and even a nanny goat, as well as many dog and cat companions. I'm often asked if I wished I'd pursued a fine art career sooner, but I trust things to happen when they're supposed to. I feel that artists of all types are a sort of conduit to the Muse, or the Creator, or whatever word you want to use. It's our job to hone our skills, then get the heck out of the way. Whatever ability I have is from my Creator, and I'm humbled to develop it however He wants. I plan to keep learning and growing in this fascinating endeavor for as long as I live."

As the daughter of well-known western artist Oleg Stavrowsky, art is in Mary Luttrell's DNA. She spent 25 years as a graphic designer and another five as a high-end art consultant in Santa Fe, working with the current top western painters and sculptors. She holds degrees in Art History and English, with a specialty in Creative Writing. Her paintings tell stories about the modern American west.
Mary took up acrylic painting in 2018 and was thrilled to begin selling her work right away. She soon felt intrigued by the timeless, mysterious look of a limited black and white palette, which she feels gives her work a striking immediacy, drawing the viewer in. Her pieces work equally well in contemporary or traditional settings.
Marys' art is also available at Masterpiece Gallery in Santa Fe, NM and Lost Creek Gallery in Calvert, TX.
