After a long day, this cowboy takes a moment to appreciate the scene unfolding before him as shadows of glory move across the valley. This piece I’ve held in my mind and heart for over four years before my pencil ever touched the paper. This is the pasture in front of my bunkhouse with the view I see most every day. The sharp pyramid is one of the local focal points “Horn Peak” in the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. After a lot of contemplation and waiting patiently for it all to happen, I found the perfect group of horses to fit my vision, to work with my “Closest Cowboy.”

My respect for Jack is expressed with real Reverence. Jack is one of the most inspiring animals I've ever known. His gaze, and the look in his eye penetrates my heart deeply. I desire to have that same obvious connection as Jack, does with the unseen Master.

Peace in Solitude features a local “Father Figure” of mine. His experience as a wrangler, guide and pastor, made him a natural model for me to express the pure peace, and the quiet solitude that I experience in the valley! The back drop in this work is the view that I see every day from my bunkhouse window. Countless times I’ve stood at this very spot with my horse at the end of a long day and watched the sun sink in the west. Indeed, Peace in Solitude at its best.

It’s all in the eyes of this young horse! So young, innocent and still a lot to learn - but the willingness in his eyes and his positive attitude captivated me. He inspired me to be a better person.

The perspective, space, the land, the light and this lone cottonwood here in the valley, made this rural county road a must to capture in pencil. We are all on a journey towards the future. In life we do not see where our path may lead but we trust in due time to reach those glorious mountain tops.
