About this work
"I’ve not gotten one that’s satisfied me as much as this one—yet. I loved the juxtaposition of her profile. To me she looks like a Western woman, and I don’t necessarily mean cowgirl, I mean who we are with strength and self-confidence. This could be sunrise or sunset, it is a time change, but the mature prairie grass shows it’s Fall, a time of preparation. His coat is super heavy, he’s ready. You’ve got all the elements of the West—the bison embodies that with the danger, watchfulness, preparation, and massive size that it takes to cope with that kind of life and survive it. The prairie grass makes all that life possible. She’s got little prairie roses scattered across her chaps. Compositionally, that’s a very strong piece."
