Armando Silva is a world renowned performance artist from Greeley who was at the Big Buckle Ball on Saturday creating an original piece for the Greeley Stampede Foundation live auction.

The painting of a bucking bronco brought $26,000 in the auction. One very generous bidder gave $15,000 for the original work of art and then donated it back to the Stampede and it was sold for $11,000 more dollars. Armando also is making 100 prints of the painting and sold them for $35 a piece at the ball. The painting made nearly $30,000 for scholarships for students in Weld County.

A big thank you to my friend Beatrice Del Sal for taking the time-lapse video of Armando at work. You can see him complete the painting in 30 seconds in this YouTube video.
