      Thanks Ed,I painted this in 1978 at a weekly painting class attended by illustrators Lee Brubaker,Don Kueker,Bill Vann,my wife Carolyn and many other great talents. It is oil thinned with turpentine painted over a crayon drawing on canvas board. I was still working at Maritz at this time. This was a fun time in my life.
