The Western landscape has a powerful hold on us. Mountainous to long stretches of nothing. It is, however, endlessly fascinating. From Wyoming to the Mexican border, nowhere is it a land of gentle rains and nodding flowers. It is rough, violent and vast. Our home, with its ungoverned past and unforgiving weather, are synonymous with hardship. People willing to put themselves and their families in unspeakable danger for better lives. The people who settle the West, in the past as well as now, have paid a hard price to be here, I paint the land in its dangerous beauty.
