I paint the American West, the era before the Great Western Migration changed it forever. My oil paintings are western and landscape, however my favorite subject matter is the Northern and Southern Plains Tribes, usually in peaceful camp settings. These paintings primarily show the passage and life of man through the landscape. It is my intent to create the feeling of “being there”. I consider my painting style as semi-impressionistic. I use a warm pallette with heavy paint, leaving the center subjects in detail. I enjoy the “time of the horse” history of these Native Americans. I have a studio with books on the many western tribes, artifacts, weapons and other items of the American West.
