"Lamar Libations" was unveiled at the 2011 Prix De West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale at The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. Paintings in this show are sold by draw, that is, patrons place an “intent to purchase slip” in a box located beneath each painting. A painting’s box can have none, one or more slips depending on its popularity. In the words of one unsuccessful suitor at the event, “The box for 'Lamar Libations' was stuffed. I didn’t have a chance.”

The Lamar Valley is located in the remote northeastern corner of Yellowstone National Park. A destination for serious wildlife-watching, it is home to elk, wolves, bear and bison. “Bison are the North American version of Cape Buffalo,” remarks Dan Smith. “I’ve been on foot around them in their habitat and to say they are intimidating is an understatement. What I enjoy about this painting is that its sedentary feel is in such contrast to the intense nature of the beast.”

“Painting the fur on the American Bison is a challenge in my highly realistic style. But when I do that successfully, you can get a real sense of proximity to this incredible beast. The smooth water of the Lamar River carries golden reflections of the surrounding prairie intermingled with the blue patches of sky. I am really pleased with how this painting came out.”

A second chance has arrived for all the patrons at the Prix De West whose slips weren’t drawn for the privilege of purchasing the original painting and also for those collectors that missed out on Dan Smith’s Sold Out at Publisher "Stillwater Crossing."
