"Jake at the Gate" 2024

“Jake at the Gate” 2024

Jake Edleman represents the 4th generation on the Edleman Ranch in South Dakota. He was not yet born when “Three Generations” of Edleman ranchers in the Chevy pickup was painted. Jake leans on the well-worn post of the barbed wire fence as he contemplates the generations before him who have passed through this gate leading to the pasture. His sun grazed face conveys the enthusiasm of youth about to discover the wisdom of his predecessors who worked this land.
