Edge of the Herd- $295
Numbering in the millions and driven to nearly extinction, the American Bison is an undisputed symbol of the great American West. Both the buffalo and the settlers that crossed the vast prairie were ornery and tough as nails.
I am reminded of the vast herd we saw just outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming last summer. They were oblivious to all the cars that had to stop on the highway to avoid any confrontation as they herd made their slow crossing to the grassy slopes on the other side. It was as if they had nothing to fear.
I am very proud that this piece won the 1st place award in the Acrylic category at the 2015 Elks Club Helldorado Art show.
