Spirit of the West

Mustangs - Northwest Colorado

Nothing embodies the spirit of the American West quite like the mustang. The ancestors of these wild horses were introduced here centuries ago by Spanish Conquistadors, and later used by Native Americans, cowboys, settlers, explorers and others. Many generations later, these  horses have become wild and roam the great expanses of the west. Debate rages though,  as to whether these majestic horses deserve a place in the wild at all. Today, free roaming mustangs are offered very little in the way of protection. Make no mistake, these are wild animals, but  they were introduced here and not native. Therefore they are not  given the same level of protection as a native wild animal. Mustangs must compete with free grazing livestock on the the same public land they were given as refuge.  The horses have been pushed into some of the most remote and inhospitable land in the country, but they are extremely hardy creatures and can survive here where most animals cannot. Sadly, the fate of wild horses in America remains in jeopardy. I for one wouldn't want to see an America where mustangs don't roam freely. Without these horses the west could have never been settled. Their contribution to American heritage has earned them their right to live and roam here freely. I hope they carry on the legend of their ancestors for many centuries to come.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice.  But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
