This painting was a part of the one-man show that was held at The Husberg Gallery in Sedona, Arizona before Bill became a member of the Cowboy Artists of America. Of the exhibition, Bill states, “At that time, the first person to get to a painting when the doors opened was the one who could purchase it. John Geraghty was determined to buy it and sent his young son running to capture it.” Soon after this successful exhibition, Joe Beeler asked if Owen would like to join the CAA. The painting was donated to the permanent collection of Museum of Western Art in Kerrville, Texas (formerly the Cowboy Artists of America Museum). They loaned the piece to the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK when Bill was the featured painter in Gilcrease Rendezvous ’96. Once again, in 2007, the museum agreed to loan the painting, when Bill was honored to receive word that it had been selected as one of only two contemporary pieces to be a part of a very special exhibition entitled, The Horse. The exhibition opened May 17, 2008 at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where over 250,000 people viewed it. The traveling exhibition then went on to exhibit over the next five years, in the Abu Dhabi Cultural Center, United Arab Emirates; the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, PA; Canadian Museum of Natural History, Gatineau, Quebec ,among others, and the final exhibition: Prariefire Museum, Kansas City, KS, 1/2013 through 10/2013.
