The Sandovals are avid collectors of fine art, yet Lanny Garland originals stand out even in the midst of their diverse collections. They built the largest hay bale hacienda west of the Mississippi which was inspired by a drawing that Garland sketched on a restaurant napkin. During the two year project Lanny designed four custom six foot hand forged iron chandeliers to grace the entire living and dining areas. Scraps of aspen latilla and insulation panels were rescued from the dumpster and transformed into "Cheyenne Dreams", a nine foot by ten foot wall hanging, perfectly in scale with the sixteen foot ceilings and large open floor plan.
"Not only do I never tire of looking at his art, I find it his colorful, original style consistently impressive." - Marcella Sandoval
"Even though I am a Santero (sacred wood carver), Lanny is in a class of his own. He creates masterpieces out of scrap ....It's just super...He matches color so beautifully. I would never attempt to duplicate what he does. - Gilbert Sandoval
"Cheyenne Dreams" - Built of scraps of insulation panels, aspen latillas, haybale twine, found objects and acrylics. It evokes images of tanned elk hides, horse herds on the high plains, the Sun Dance and a vanished people. The central Thunderbird represents Manitoba, the Great Spirit.
