There is an old photograph taken in 1886 in which Geronimo and other Chiricahua Apache prisoners are sitting along the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks before re-boarding the train. They were on a solemn journey where fear, sickness, sorrow and death awaited many. I wanted to initiate a painting in peaceful contrast to that image without ever illustrating the aftermath of Apacheria."This painting was awarded the 2019 Southwest Art Magazine's ARTISTIC EXCELLENCE Competition top 100 Runners Up. It was also awarded the Best of Show and First Place in Oils at the 2020 Phippen Museum's Virtual 46th Annual Western Art Show & Sale( http://phippenartmuseum.org/ ).
