Growing up in California near the Donner Pass–a place that arouses a hunger for history–Jim Reynolds was steeped in the lore of the Old West. At 13, Reynolds received a calendar with a reproduction of a Frank Tenney Johnson and he began to wonder what it would take to be able to paint like that. After a stint in the navy in World War II, he studied art, became a commercial illustrator, and enjoyed great success as a storyboard and set artist in Hollywood. In 1967, Reynolds moved to Arizona, earning high praise and high honors for his lively brushwork and his fidelity to the land and people of the American West.
