Fred Meijer enjoyed images associated with the American West. A painter and sculptor, Curtis Zabel’s favorite subjects are cowboys and wildlife. Although he has no formal art training, he has spent a lifetime observing and studying the things he loves to paint and sculpt. The Escape features two leaping mule deer.
