Gaucho (Available as 20"x24" Lithograph on Watercolor Paper)
These are the cowboys of the estancias (cattle ranches) on the South American pampas (plains). My love for the horse and polo allowed me the opportunity to play matches in Argentina.

The Chase (Available as 24"x30" original and Giclee)

The Bengal Lancer Sikh Polo Player (Available as 21"x30" Giclee)
While working in India, I was honored by being invited to play a polo match with officers of the President (formerly called the Viceroy) of India's bodyguard and the 61st Jaipur Cavalry.

Mustered Out (Available as 24"x30" Giclee)
This picture depicts a retired cavalryman on his way to a new life. The landscape is the San Pedro River valley near Fort Huachuca, Arizona, where I graduated from U.S. Army Intelligence school.

The Raid
Having visited Mexico regularly since 1963, I was compelled to paint this picture because I felt an odd kinship with the peoples struggle for independence. I have made composite subjects from photos taken during the Mexican revolution. I wanted to convey the almost electric feeling of that time in history. The social turmoil, and upheaval taking place put such a tension in the air you can still feel it. Limited Edition to 295, signed and numbered.
