My Darling Clemetine is renowned Western artist Thom Ross’s latest interpretation of the walk down prior to the shootout behind the O.K. Corral on October 26, 1881. The Santa Fe, New Mexico, artist named the 48” x 72” acrylic on canvas after John Ford’s cinematic classic My Darling Clementine, which he watched while working on the February 2021 painting. According to Ross, “the walk down is the most symbolic vision of the gunfight experience.”My Darling Clementine is available at Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
