I never tire of the thrill of hoofbeats...

I have loved westerns for as long as I can remember. There is something in me that delights in seeing strong men, beautiful women, horses, blazing guns, comradeship, and daring courage on the silver screen. Honestly, the biggest things that draw me to westerns are none of those I just mentioned. What I really love most are the morals, character, and the story of good triumphing over evil.

The old western films and TV shows of yesteryear were chock full of men who did what was right in spite of intense pain, men who had not only grit, but also the sound moral judgement and discernment that enabled them to meet the challenges and tests thrown at them with boldness. The fight of a man with courage who stands up for justice and truth against evil men and ideas never looses it's appeal to me. Westerns are inspiring films.

Or as another fellow once said: "People had to be hard. People had to be tough. I think there's a modern day fascination with that, because we have--at least in America in the first world--so many comforts nowadays. At least the majority, you know, people in the big cities. That to look at a life where you had to be entirely self-sufficient--you weren't getting help from anybody--is really admirable, you know. And I think that slightly for me, there's always a question of "Well, would I be able to do that?"... And with all westerns it's kind of testing your mettle...it's about "Will you do the right thing?" Will you step up to the plate when that is needed, with no support from anybody else." (Christian Bale)

It should come as no surprise that when I started drawing as a youngster most of my artwork was of horses and cowboys. The years have flown by and my drawings of necessity have expanded to include many different subjects and themes, but my favorite genre, the one that I love to work in most, is still the western.

In my shop you will find fine art and high quality stationary of the west, many of them inspired by western films, actors, or the great artists who have portrayed the west so masterfully. My goal is to help you stock your desk with high quality stationary and decorate your walls with drawings that stir up wonderful memories and bring a smile to your face.

If you have any questions, thoughts, or requests don't hesitate to contact me. I'd love to hear from you!
