Back in the day the Hoot Owl used to stay open until very late at night. At the time, there was a bar next door called the Cowgirl Corral. Often, after a long night of drinking and striking out at the Cowgirl, my buddies and I would go next door to the Hoot Owl for something to eat. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your point of view, the Cowgirl has long since been torn down.
Now it’s my students, talking about the Hoot Owl with religious reverence, and their holy grail is the famous biscuits and gravy!
Originally, Wendy the owner asked me to do a painting. I wasn’t planning on trying to sell prints of it. Ironically, it is one of my best sellers.
