Being a West Texas girl, born and raised, I love Western art. I'm lucky to live near a museum with the quality of this one: The Amon Carter Museum: An American Collection. This museum is where I was first exposed to Remingtons and Russells--bronzes and paintings. Folks, there are a lot of ugly horse pictures out there. I don't know what it is about horses that makes them so difficult to capture in painting, especially in movement. But both Remington and Russell do it well.

I had only ever seen Neiman's sports related work--largely in Sports Illustrated. I was delighted to find this one. You can find more of his work on his official website.
