|Title||Run On the Cherokee Strip|
|Medium||oil on canvas|
Settlers on horseback and in covered wagons, galloping across the prairie in Oklahoma.
This painting, done in earth tones that create the feeling of dust and dry Oklahoma air, depicts the 1893 opening of the Cherokee Outlet . At the sound of a gun 100,000 land hungry westerners rode or ran to claim 160 acres of the 6 million acres of Indian Territory that the government opened to white development. This painting shows the rush for land when Indian Territory was open up for development.
