Ten-Horse on the Overland

The Overland Trail (also known as the Overland Stage Line) was a stagecoach and wagon trail in the American West during the 19th century. While portions of the route had been used by explorers and trappers since the 1820s, the Overland Trail was most heavily used in the 1860s as an alternative route to the Oregon, California and Mormon trails through central Wyoming. The Overland Trail was famously used by the Overland Stage Company owned by Ben Holladay to run mail and passengers to Salt Lake City, Utah via stagecoaches in the early 1860s. Starting from Atchison, Kansas the trail descended into Colorado before looping back up to southern Wyoming and rejoining the Oregon Trail at Fort Bridger.

This painting is of a ten horse/mule team pulling a water wagon over the trail. The painting is an acrylic monocolor painted in Raw Umber, and is on a 24 X 48 inch stretched canvas. .

The Original Ten Horse on the Overland is available, and the 24 X 48 inch canvas is $1200.
