In the mid 1980s I began to read the history of this frontier. My studio was at Possum Kingdom where I was painting landscapes. Many of my places "seemed" to have stories to tell and I hoped I could pin a few down. Maybe it got out of hand but through the years I continued to collect stories related to this countryside though my subject matter turned to interiors and figures. There is a lot of pioneer something in the people who live here.

Loving Arms

Pass through the countryside knowing that beneath wildflower-covered pastures and valleys, soil once soaked with blood recall horrors and glories equal to any in history. Click on the crosses and targets on the map below to discover, as I did, how this beautiful scenery comes to life when you know the accounts of the dramatic events that once occurred around you.
