Once again Wayne Baize managed to imbue both energy and a sense of place in a small image. Surrounded by pristine landscape, cowboys and horses lope toward the viewer. The scene is set in the Davis Mountains in far West Texas, home to the Baize family ranch. The joy of living and working in this beautiful environment is clearly communicated in this piece.
