Wildlife and being on horseback are two things I cherish. Nothing seems to elevate the soul quite like a good ride on a solid mount in the backcountry. I’ve started to add to my repertoire more cowboy and western themed work simply because that’s what I am at heart. A Cowboy. “Hazards of the Trail” is a culmination of both wildlife and western art based upon a personal experience a few years ago when a confused bull moose mistook my horses as a potential aficionado. It was a little dicey when he appeared across the river to check us out and the new colt was having none of it. Thank goodness Bull Winkle changed his mind. It’s an astounding experience to see such a magnificent monarch as this bull in his own court glorified with a crown of nobility born of wilderness.
