"South by Southwest"
original: oil on masonite 12x9"
Following the U.S. Civil War, veterans, North and South, migrated west for many disparate reasons. Some, who remained in the military, were restationed to western outposts across the Territories, from Wyoming to the Mexican border, where their experience was seen as an asset to those armies contending with "Native issues." Many from the old South, simply found themselves displaced by the war. Family and friends gone, farms destroyed, no war left to fight.
In South by Southwest, I envision an aging Confederate soldier who has wandered in search of peace for himself, looking for a place to spend his latter days, and finding a new landscape in Arizona.
