Horse Aspen Grove (2012)
Buffalo is the subject of an article in the Colorado Springs Gazette titled Painter Captures Natures Wonders.
"Buffalo will go down as one of the premier watercolorists of the 20th century," says Tracy Miller. "Through his paintings, he's documented a space and time and places in Colorado before Colorado became so developed."
"I've got about 100 favorite places," Kaplinski, 70, says from his ranch in Elizabeth. He's lived there for 35 years, and cares for a small herd of Texas Longhorn cattle. "Of course, the Colorado mountains - we've got tremendous scenery right here."
