Neighborhood Bullies

The word “bullies” is so often associated with school yard toughs – the kind of kids who like to torment their younger, smaller, sometimes more defenseless counterparts, but for a lover of the Old West such as myself, bullies conjures up an entirely different image.

I had fun with this early painting, “Neighborhood Bullies”. And, who knows, maybe the next time you hear or read that word an entirely different image will come to mind.

  1. is that little prarie dog a bully???? Laughing. I am reading a very interesting, albeit exhaustive book titled”The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud….” It is about the Sioux nation and you might find it very interesting.

  2. I, most definitely, will be thinking of your buffalo painting when I hear someone speak of bullies again, Trapper Gale. Nice painting! Hope they don’t cause too much damage to this poor prairie dog’s home. πŸ™‚

  3. Looks just like a field around the corner from the Crazyhorse Monument! There were plenty of bison and prairie dogs happening in it as I rode by…very realistic portrayal!

Make my day... tell me what you think!
