Daryl Poulin painted abstract art, prints and posters before dedicating himself to the excitement of studying and painting the West. Although he says he's just begun, his focus is intact. "Every painting I've done has a horse in it,' he says. "Every animal or person in my paintings is a real, live animal or person.' Poulin paints more than the West as it's traditionally known. He paints the West as it is today. "I want to depict the contemporary as it really is,' he says. "I'm filtering an old subject through current sensibilities.'
