R.A. Guthrie is a great American western artist from Montana. His artistic style and lifestyle are that of the rugged individualist. Rick works on one of the largest ranches in the Western United States where he is inspired by wildlife, working on the ranch and the environment that surrounds him in the wide, open spaces of nature. “The best inspiration I know of is to experience your art as a way of life, whether it’s sitting on the ranch house porch watching a family of whitetail cross the meadow or gather the fall cattle from the high country. I believe in order to create a good piece of art, regardless of the medium, it must come from your heart,” states Guthrie.
