Tulia, Texas - One of the most famous western artists around lives in Tulia... His name is Kenneth Wyatt.

His artwork is in all fifty states and more than 90 countries. He says, "I've got a jillion pictures in my mind, all built up, ready to go. Just driving down the road, this is why I paint the west. I guess if I lived in Florida, I'd paint pelicans. But living here, everybody's a cowboy here." 

Wyatt retired after thirty years of being a minister, and decided to move to Tulia and paint... Something he's been doing for the last thirty years.

All in all, he estimates he's painted more than 8,000 pieces of artwork.
