I have always been mesmerized by the precise, quick dance between the horse and cow when the Cutting Horse is doing the work. I actually got to ride one of these amazing steeds on a cattle drive in Nebraska near the North Platte River. It was breathtaking. When a stray Angus calf broke away from the herd, �Captain� and I were the closest to him and as I looked his direction, Captain took that as his signal and took off at what felt a lot like jet speed, and got the job done. I was just a passenger holding on and hoping not to come across a prairie dog hole at that speed. With the calf back in the herd I finally breathed.

Captain did all the work and deserved the credit.
Parts of my story are integral to why I do what I do, what motivates me and the emotions and ideas I am trying to convey through my work. CS Lewis said, in Till We Have Faces...

Do you think it all meant nothing, all the longing...The longing for home...For indeed it now feels not like going, but like going back. My mother told people the first thing I ever drew was a horse before I was three in the dust on the kitchen floor of the little white clapboard parsonage in the North Woods of Wisconsin. In 1963, our family took a trip Out West to Vancouver, BC,...
