"Palo Duro Breeze" is one of my newest Western depictions from 2015. The composition is based on my research into the historical Palo Duro Canyon which was means "Hard Wood" in Spanish due to the abundant Mesquite and Juniper trees in the area. This is the location where the famous Charles Goodnight of the "Goodnight Loving Trail" had established the JA Ranch over 100 years ago. I found this story and scenery very fascinating and wanted to capture this piece of Western history with this painting.
