My Aunt Betty grew up in a fishing family in the teens. They had a lot of good fishing pretty much to themselves in those days compared with today. West Yellowstone MT. is close to the Madison River. Grampa traded in the '15 T for a 1918 Buick. The family was growing. This and the Test Bench are all I managed to paint this Winter.

Roger, speaking of the hand colored photos, here is one my Grandfather had made probably in the 20's

Grand dad did a lot of fishing in the Park. He supplied fish for some of the hotels. One day while he was fishing President Wilson's limousines pulled up. The President started putting on his fishing gear. One of the Secret Service agents walked over. "Mr. Eagle, the President would like to catch some fish. Can you show us a good spot?" Grampa tried to help. The agents visited but Wislon had no luck. Eventually they packed up and left. Catching another fish Grampa climbed up the bank to put it in his creel. To his surprise the other fish he had caught were not there.
A day or two later the Bozeman newspaper had a front page picture of Wilson and the wonderful fish he had caught in Yellowstone Park.
I wasn't there but Grampa and the family love to tell that story.
Glad you liked the painting.

Richard - Your artistic talent is amazing! You are one of many "T-guys" on the forum that I'd like to meet some day, and in your case, I'd like that to be where and when I could see a lot more of your work. Interestingly, that could be Model T restoration, art work, metal work, etc, etc, and not necessarily in that order! Again, your skills are certainly "varied" and amazing,.......harold

Again a great painting. I really appreciate your depictions of such a great time in American history.
Thanks again,
Kevin

neat stuff as usual Richard. When I was a kid, that's the type of creel we all used. We must have had a half-dozen of them. Don't know what happened to them, they used to be in one of the resort storage buildings, but long gone now. Now they're "antiques" !!! Augh, I'm NOT that old!!!
Yes, the bamboo rods are gone too. . . :-(

Thank you Richard for allowing us to see another of your paintings.
All of the above comments are what I was thinking.
You are a wonderful talent.
