Committed to his native state of Wyoming as a place to live and paint, he depicts dramatic mountain landscapes as well as wildlife in his paintings from his studio in Cody. He does much preparatory work outside, often traveling by dog sled pulled by the many sled dogs he owns.
He grew up in Wyoming in a family where his father was an artist, and they lived in a rural setting where he learned to love exploration of the great expanse of the outdoors. He wrangled for an outfitter and also worked in an art gallery that sent him to framing school in Mississippi. While beginning to paint, he paid the bills with carpentry and contracting, and finally he built his home and large studio. In 1996, he became a full-time artist.
His mentors have been Robert Pummel in Kerrville, Texas and Gary Fitzler in Jackson, Wyoming. He is a four-time winner of the Jurors’ Choice Award at the Buffalo Bill Art Show in Cody, Wyoming. Barhaug was the 1999 winner of the People’s Choice Award, as well as the C.M. Russell Auction, where he was winner of the 1999 Ralph “Tuffy” Berg Award.

Dean St. Clair (1942-2003)
As a young boy, Dean St. Clair wanted to draw as much as he wanted to move to the Wild West. As and adult, he now utilizes both desires in creating a poweful collection of watercolors and oils. His work combines a delicate balance of light, shadow and color to express his love of things natural and times past. In creating his paintings, he draws from a wealth of experiences from his youth on a farm in North Carolina to traveling the West and participating in rondups on a ranch in New Mexico.
