When the original poster artwork by Howard Terpning for the 1963 epic "Cleopatra" was unveiled, star Rex Harrison was incensed that it only depicted two of the film's three top-billed stars, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton - then the most famous couple in the world. Harrison sued, and 20th Century Fox had the artist add Harrison into his original painting. The estimates for the painting ranged from $60,000 - $80,000. It sold for $126,000.

The May/June issue of Art of the West magazine features an article on Daniel's studio. This is one of the magazine's most popular features. His studio is small, cozy and inside the home but it is unique in that it extends beyond the physical structure to include the surrounding wilderness. Wildlife abounds outside the studio and provides the inspiration for his work.
Living in close proximity to the wildlife subjects Daniel paints is one of the plusses of living on the north side of a mountain deep in the trees with an extended winter season.
