Already a successful commercial artist, John Clymer decided to leave that familiar world behind in 1964 and devote his time to easel paintings of the early pioneer days in the American West. Clymer was a meticulous researcher, traveling throughout the West collecting material for his canvases. As a result, each of his paintings tells its own particular story, inspiring viewers to cast their minds back to Òonce upon a time.Ó Crossing the Stream hearkens back to the work Clymer did for the Stetson Hat Company. Mare and colt, father and son, this painting speaks to the pride parents take in new generations early in the spring of the year.
