Artist's Description

ONE OF MY FISHING BUDDIES JUST LOST HIS NEPHEW TO A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT. DISPITE WEARING A HELMET, WHEN YOU BREAK YOUR NECK, YOU’RE DEAD. SO, WHILE LOOKING THROUGH OLD PHOTOS OF HIS FAMILY, PABLO CAME UP WITH THIS PHOTO OF HIS “GRANDPA LAMB AND THE LAMB CLAN”, THAT WE FIGURE WAS TAKEN IN ABOUT 1914 OR 1915. HE CAME ABOUT THAT TIME, BY THE AGE APPERANCE OF HIS GRANDFATHER, THE MAN IN THE TOP CENTER WITH THE HATCHET IN HIS HAND, HELD HIGH FOR ALL TO SEE. GRANDMOTHER, ON THE LEFT WITH A KNIFE IN HER HANDS AND HIS AUNTS AND UNCLES, AND OTHER NAPHERIOUS CHARACTORS, ALL WITH SOME TYPE OF WEAPON IN THEIR HANDS. HIS MOTHER WAS NOT IN THE PHOTO, SO HE KNEW IT WASN’T AFTER HER BIRTH, BUT SOMETIME BEFORE. WE ALSO WERE TRYING TO GO BY THE MOTORCYCLE DESIGNS. THEY AREN’T EASY TO SEE, BUT IF ANYONE KNOWS ABOUT THE HARLEYS IN THIS PHOTO, ANY INFORMATION IS WELCOME. I WOULD BE SURE TO PASS IT ALONG TO PABLO. THERE IS ALSO A MONUEMENT UP ON THE HILLSIDE UNDER SOME TREES JUST OFF LEFT CENTER AREA OF THE PHOTO. I TOOK THE SCANNED PHOTO FROM PABLO AND WENT INTO ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 2.0 AND DID QUITE A BIT OF RESTORATION WORK TO MAKE A PRINTABLE 8X10 BLACK AND WHITE PRINT. I BELIEVE THE ORIGINAL PHOTO WAS ONLY 4X6 WITH AN OLD LEATHER TYPE FRAME AROUND IT. PABLO SCANNED IT, I JUST WORKED OFF A DISK THAT HE HAD THEM ON. WE ALSO USED THIS PHOTO AS A BACKGROUND PHOTO FOR A COLLAGE OF WILLIAM. THE MAIH PHOTO WAS THIS ONE, WE ALSO ADDED A RECENT PHOTO OF WILLIAM, ONE WITH HIS WIDOWED WIFE AND HIM ON THEIR WEDDING DAY, ANOTHER ONE WITH WILLIAM AND HIS FAVORITE PARROTT ON HIS ARM AND A PHOTO OF HIS MOTHER AND FATHER AND SISTERS IN IT. BUT, THAT’S A DIFFERENT PHOTO. PABLO SAID THAT THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN SOMEWHERE AROUND CALIFORNIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
