Painting the Legacy of the Western Frontier…
“ I love to paint the Old West. I derive great satisfaction from creating images that stir the imagination and express the truths of the way it used to be. From the beginning of western expansionism and Lewis & Clark to the early decades of the 1900’s, America experienced a period of unparalleled adventures, hardships, triumphs and tragedies.
Whether it be the portrayal of mountain men trapping beaver in the remote wilderness or the visceral danger of Lakota Sioux hunting buffalo; a U. S. Cavalry column riding down a coulee at the Little Big Horn or a pioneer wagon train desperately searching for water; a group of cowboys singing songs around a crackling campfire at dusk or a swift- moving Cheyenne war party charging over a bluff; I endeavor to depict all that was and is the legacy of the Western Frontier. “
