In the Studio: Daniel Boone

This new piece is based on an image of the American folk legend, Daniel Boone. On Saturday afternoons, when I was little my dad and I watched old Disney shows about Daniel Boone and Davy Crochet. My dad is an accomplished hunter and in my imagination became Daniel Boone-like legend. I often imagine him as a young man dragging deer through the snow in a stylish coon skin cap. This piece may never leave my studio because on it's completion it became oddly sentimental. Maybe I'll give it to my Dad.
