Chuck, you should go find and pin some of Charlie Russell Indian paintings - he is without a doubt my favorite western/Native American painter
Painted a TON of Montana scenes as well. I am familiar with him and got interested in him when I heard about him in a song. I will check it out and see what I can find to pin. Thanks Brenda!
I can see you found some while I was away. Can you do knock off paintings???? I also love, Remington and Russell. I do collect a few of the "dead guys" western original art. And, I go to the Charlie Russell Art Auction and show every year in Great Falls. It is amazing the artifacts and art at the auction!!!
I am not sure about the knock off paintings. I do know that I want to give credit where it is due for each painting. I am a War Between the States buff and found a LOT of those paintings. Problem is, there are no artists mentioned so I am hesitant to pin them. I have a lot of paintings saved in a personal folder for my own enjoyment...been collecting war art for many years. I, however, can't paint a stick figure, about the only painting I can do is houses - inside and out. : )
ha! Painting houses - my kinda guy!!! My Dad and you would have had a lot to talk about. He was a highly decorated Green Beret, one of the original group that JKF commissioned. When he retired from the military, he was the Professor of Military Science at the University of Texas. He loved all things military, and had quite a collection of memorabilia, including art. However, in his soul, he was a cowboy, as he grew up on a ranch and worked as a cowboy before being drafted. He had a lot of western art as well. I guess I got my love of it from him.
