Artist Statement: For over a decade the American West has been a source of inspiration, adventure and stories for my friends and I. Fly fishing, hiking and photography have provided backdrops for thousands of images. In the past, similar images have sparked works of art by my heroes, Montana writer Norman Maclean, Texas photographer Wyman Meinzer and New Mexico painter Georgia O’Keefe. On rare occasions, I flatter myself that I may have captured a glimpse of the magic of the West. O’Keefe once explained in an answer to a question, that “she painted not what she saw but, what she felt. And, make no mistake, the shadows and lights of the high mountain deserts of New Mexico and reflections of the roaring rivers of Montana’s Glacier National Park leave us travelers “haunted” as described in Maclean’s almost biblical novella, “A River Runs Through It”. I hope you enjoy images of my visits to the West.
