Mayhem on the Cheyenne - 50" x 34"

Mayhem on the Cheyenne was painted in 2009.  From 1874 to 1908 the Gold Rushers in the Black Hills of South Dakota were supplied by the wagon trains running from Fort Pierre, SD, on the Missouri River, to Deadwood, SD.  In 2008, 350 folks with their wagons were invited to reenact this 250 mile experience.  On day ten of this seventeen day wagon train, while crossing the Cheyenne River, a stagecoach pulled by a six horse hitch had horses decide to double back, tipping the coach in to the water.  I created this painting from reference photos of the tipping, and the rest of the paintings images from shots that I took of cowboys on their horses and of course just plain artistic imagination.
