The west is full of folklore and myth. The stories of its settlement and the chaos that existed are relatively reachable looking back only a few generations. My ancestors settled in the Salt Lake Valley and Central Utah. As kids we grew up hearing stories of our pioneer ancestors, cowboys and native Americans, and the infamous outlaws. Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were the stories discussed around the campfire on out Boy Scout camp outs.
Here is The Sundance Kid, (oil canvas, 30"x 40") and the preliminary sketch.

I painted this based on some experiences I had in southern Argentina. It is about three companions and our leader "Answering the Call" in a small town called Pique. It was so enjoyable to paint I am tempted to do a really large version of it. This one is an oil on canvas and 30"x 40".
Check out this video Joel Addams made about the painting.
