Sculpting and Painting the American West

Displaying Your Art

Art is completed by the viewer. Collectors become very creative when integrating sculpture into their lives, sometimes changing even the title of the sculpture to fit their needs.

Happy Go Lucky

Old Maude

Stan and Lorna Searle of Monument, Colorado built a special lighted nook in the entry to their home for Veryl's half life sized "Old Maude." The Searle's raise Texas Longhorns and their interest is reflected with both paintings and sculpture throughout their home.

"Old Maude" and "Old Blue", The Haley Library, Midland, TX

Veryl's first monumental sculpture was of a longhorn cow and calf, "Old Maude." It was installed at the Haley Memorial Library in Midland, Texas in 1982. J. Evetts Haley, Sr. was the author of "Charles Goodnight - Cowman and Plainsman" and he describes Old Maude as having had "27 calves by actual count." Veryl has long wished to sculpt Colonel Goodnight's famous lead steer, Old Blue, and that desire came to fruition in the fall of 2010. The Haley Library added Old Blue to their collection. The working model of Old Maude and the new sculpture of Old Blue are shown here at the Haley Library with a painting by Tom Browning.

Funded by donations from the citizens of Wyoming, "A New Beginning" was dedicated on June 22, 2011 in front of the Union Pacific Railroad Museum in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

A New Beginning portrays a Victorian woman in the 1890's.
She is self-assured and ready to take full advantage of the opportunities of the decade.
In 1890, Wyoming entered the union as the first state to allow women the right to vote.
Colorado followed their lead, and in 1893 became the first state to legislate women's vote.
A New Beginning represents the empowerment women felt in the 1890's.

"The Bronc" was purchased by Mark and Kathleen Sublette, owners of Medicine Man Gallery, for the entrance to their Tucson home in Rattlesnake Canyon. Mark collaborated with Roger to include a bronze rattlesnake. It would be an understatement to say that this makes a very dramatic entrance to the Canyon!
