Bad Bear Saloon. Across the West we see remnants of buildings beside railroad tracks. Did the people disappear because the train passed them by? This town is waiting to be rediscovered. . .
Bad Bear Saloon received a second place in a 2012 juried exhibition of the West Valley Arts Council, Surprise, AZ. I was named the “Third Artist of Distinction,” when the “Bad Bear” was juried into Sundust Gallery’s, “Celebration,” exhibition, July 2011, Mesa. It remains one of my favorite paintings.
