Artist's Description

For this entry I wanted to portray the proud spirit of the buffalo. Having lived at Fort Sill for several years on a base, I grew up to love the patriotic feeling that I would be filled with when they would play the retreat everyday at five-o-clock. To show this I used vivid patriotic and primary colors. I feel that this design represents my patriotism and the proud spirit of the buffalo very well.

Spirit of the Buffalo originated as a public art project combining art, commerce and civic pride in Oklahoma featuring Oklahoma artists. Initial proceeds benefited the Nature Conservancy's work in Oklahoma. The website project continues through private funds.
