Don Oelze western prints are offered on either canvas and quality Fine Art paper. Bitterroot Frames gives you the choice of getting your giclée prints shipped to you rolled, mounted on foam core or stretched on stretcher bars. Shipping rates will be assessed after purchase and based on size, weight and desired destination. We recommend the paper prints are placed under glass for their protection. Canvas prints are sprayed with a UV protection coat, as a result they can be framed and hung without being placed under glass. Custom sizes can be requested via email or phone.

Don Oelze’s parents were from the United States but their Interests took them to different parts of the world. Don was born in New Zealand and at an early age he had a fascination with America and especially with the lifestyle of cowboys and Indians. He started drawing Indians at a very early age, and by the time he was in school at age six or seven, he remembers getting in trouble for drawing Indians and cowboys in class instead of paying attention to his New Zealand history teacher. When he was eight years old, his parents moved back to the United States where he continued to draw and paint throughout high school and university. In 2004 after working in Tokyo for ten years, Don and his wife Utako moved to Montana where he studies the country and people that he loves to paint.
