Early on, I was not particularly drawn to traditional western art, but my lifelong enthusiasm for western movies was stoked by the revisionist and off-beat westerns of the late 1960s and early 1970s—Once Upon a Time in the West, The Wild Bunch, Little Big Man, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, El Topo—and, living in Texas, I began to see the works of artists who were also revisiting and revising western subjects, interpreting cowboys and Indians and western places in fresh ways—Fritz Scholder, Luis Jimenez, Terry Allen, Robert Wade, Vernon Fisher and Ed Blackburn, among others.
