MY STORY

My photo
Photo circa 1947, I always wanted to be a cowboy! Whether working for a short time on the historic Hansen Ranch in Jackson Hole as a young man, just out of the service, to working the stock at the Jackson Rodeo, it nurtured in me a love of the American Cowboy. From my home in Dubois,Wyoming. I look forward each spring to roundup time with my good Friend, John Sides. On his 20,000 acre cattle ranch in South Dakota, each year we relive what ranchers and cowboys have done since cattle were introduced to the west. Little has changed in a hundred years and the experience and camaraderie is all cowboy. The period of 1820 to 1880 on the western plains was the most colorful in American history. Unfortunately, I was born too late to experience it first hand.

Arroyo at Dennison Ranch


Well I was not happy with the Dennison Arroyo so I worked on it a little more. I am not sure I helped it much but I tried. I am mostly a figure painter so I have to push myself a little to do scenery and plein air. I have started a smaller 8x10 fall scene titled "Above Horse Creek in Autumn" which I hope is better and will post soon
