Fall is when big game animals are in their prime and the colors of landscape are at their richest. For an artist such as Tucker Smith, who is a master at depicting wildlife and their habitat in wonderfully balanced and subtle compositions, it’s a season full of inspiration. And, it’s a time when an expedition to the back country of the Bridger-Teton National Forest is simply magic.

Smith’s Morning at Ditch Creek was a featured painting and collector favorite at “The Best of the Best” retrospective at Oklahoma’s Woolaroc Museum. This showing of the works of four painters and three sculptors presented the finest works from the premier artists in wildlife today. 

A Fine Art Edition Canvas created hand-in-hand with the artist, Morning at Ditch Creek captures all the majesty and tapestry of an early morning, high mountain-meadow at the peak of Fall. 


Tucker Smith
“Painting is ninety percent work,” says Tucker Smith. “The rest is talent, but talent isn’t something you’re simply born with. Talent requires a great deal of perseverance.” Smith is well known for his painstaking approach to art. He does research, paints on location, and labors at his easel until he feels the work is exactly right. “I suppose I’m a perfectionist,” he says, and then adds with his customary modesty, “but it turns out all right in the end, I guess.” Smith was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. As he grew up there, he developed an interest in drawing, but he didn’t think it was possible to make a living as an artist. It wasn’t until he attended the University of Wyoming that he seriously started to consider a fine art career. Even so, he worked as a computer programmer and systems analyst for ten years before making the courageous decision to become a full-time artist. Today Tucker Smith’s art is part of the permanent collections of such respected galleries as the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma and the American West Art Museum in Wyoming. Smith is a member of the National Academy of Western Art and is the recipient of many major art awards, including the prestigious Prix de West. Smith lives with his wife, Jean, on a small ranch in Montana’s Rocky Mountains. There they have raised two sons and many quarter horses. The boys are grown now and out on their own, and there are only a few riding horses left in the stable, but the Smiths still live a picturesque life that is well suited to Tucker’s reputation as one of the country’s finest artists of the West.
