When he was 15, Joe Stahley rode his horse, Don, from his home in Rochester, NY to Chicago to begin his studies at the Chicago Art Institute. Stahley would go on to study with Harvey Dunn, Dean Cornwell, and Nicolai Fechin and to enjoy a successful career in illustration and in painting very fine Western scenes such as Early We Start.
