"A Winter Night"


 

David Graham comments on "A Winter Night":

With the winter chill knocking at the door, those inside this cabin are huddled around the fireplace, absorbing the warmth provided by the latest log to be added to the flames. A visitor has stopped by to warm up for a moment, before continuing on. His horse is tied to the hitching post, patiently awaiting his rider's return. There is nothing  quite like a clear winter's night, when the moon is slowly rising and reflecting its light off a fresh blanket of snow. The land is still, as if in a great slumber. There are no birds chattering, no chirping from insects, and none of the usual sounds that are so typical of a summer's evening. All is quiet here, except for the occasional distant echo of a coyote howling, or perhaps an owl hooting from a tree top.
 

About David Graham
excerpted from
www.davidgrahamart.com

David Graham was born in Miles City, Montana, while his parents and grandparents were leasing a ranch 40 miles east of Miles City in the Powder River breaks. David's path to becoming an artist was a long and winding one. His early years were spent on the ranch, but the 1980s were tough times in this region and due to drought and other circumstances, David's family had to give up the ranching way of life. David's family lived in a number of areas around the state of Montana while he was in his "growing up" years.

The eastern plains of Montana, however, were always considered "home" by David and his family. In 2000, David's family returned to eastern Montana after his dad accepted a position as a ranch manager, ironically enough, on a ranch that contained the land that the Graham's once had leased. During his college years, David was fortunate to be involved with his dad on the ranch and to take part in experiences that vastly enhanced the art he now creates. David worked on this ranch for 7 years. He graduated in 2004 with a Business degree, but always found time on the side to draw and paint. During the first couple years after college, David worked half of the year on the ranch and spent the other half painting in his Bozeman studio...

Today, David lives in Billings, Montana, and works on painting western and wildlife art full-time. When he's not sitting at his easel, David finds time to enjoy the great outdoors that Montana has to offer. Many summer days will find him climbing some mountain, or riding horseback across the prairie and taking in the breathtaking sights and sounds.

The time spent gathering research material is what David looks forward to the most. Whether he spends time horseback, or arms himself with bear spray and a backpack in his trips to Glacier or Yellowstone Parks, David usually comes away with unforgettable memories, and something to put on canvas.

David's faith in God also maintains an important place in his life and he enjoys getting involved in his local church.
