Painting completed in: 2003

Prior to the anglo settlers the great plains were host to several million Buffalo but by the beginning of this century, when conservation efforts began, there were only a few hundred left. Currently they are up to over a Quarter Million and gaining. I have always wanted to Paint Buffalo but had been unable to find a significant number to observe until recently when I had the opportunity to get into the middle of a herd of nearly 100 buffalo and observe them close up.
