Artist Comments: We live in the country and several times a year a small caravan of covered wagons and horses with riders would ride past our small ranch from a nearby community. The caravan was organized by the local vet. This caravan became the inspiration for this painting.
Covered wagons and pioneers are one of the first things that come mind when I think of the Old West. I love that sense of adventure and pioneering spirit that drove early settlers to pack up their family, mount a covered wagon and move across the Great Plains to settle out West. They are indeed an icon of the American Old West.
Sometimes the covered wagon was also called a “prairie schooner” because the white canvas covers of the wagons crossing the open range reminded some writers of the sails of a ship at sea.
