"The Last Stand" all wired up

"The Last Stand,"  24" x 48," oil on gallery wrapped canvas, $1200 
This painting was finished a few months ago, but it took me forever to get it wired and ready to hang.  I even named it! 

Last spring, my daughters came out for a visit from Chicago.  We drove through Custer State Park in Custer, SD.  I don't live too far from there and had never gone through it before.  Isn't that the way?  The last people to play tourist are the people who live in the area!

We wanted to see the roaming buffalo and their new babies -- which we saw plenty of.  Along the way, we were slowly driving by this large grassy hill with only one tree on top.  Erin, my oldest, jumped out to run up and I took a bunch of pictures. 

So, that is why it is called "The Last Stand."
