Graphite and White Pencil on tan paper
Original 28 × 40 inches

I used a photo of my Uncle Junior and his Cousin, Dick, for this pencil drawing.

I don’t know if they were mad or just looking “tough” for the camera. Dick rode the Greyhound bus from Chicago to spend every summer on the ranch.

Late 1930’s, Dawson County, Montana, USA

Wildlife, people, dogs, ranches, mountains, cameras.

    I like this one also Kay. I think they are looking tough and should be. That’s a tough job. You can smell the fur burn for only a few seconds.

  • Thanks Barb, I put the sunset on the other one to enter it in a campfire at sunset challenge in PTW.
    I think they were being he-men in this.
