    Incredible paint handling

    It's an amazing thing to see, isn't it? I could pour over his brush strokes for hours!

    I used to be absolutely blown away by this sort of thing as a kid, especially the McGinnis works for movies and books (never knew back then who any of the artists were of course)
    No mistaking these two men in this painting, you couldn't get a better likeness if they were stood there in person!
    Amazing painting, I had to come back and look in awe again.

    And just think; all this has been replaced by badly designed, formulaic Photoshopped photo montages. Ain't technology grand?

    Howard Terpning painted me in 1995. The painting is called "Before the Little Bighorn", I am the soldier on the sorrel horse. Mr Terpning was a very pleasant man.
