I was glad to invite someone special into
my studio and gallery, he had an interest in my artwork. He asked
me if I would paint by commission his unique idea
based on a painting he liked of mine. "Wild
Horses of Nevada"? Only
He had a knick-knack that for many years he has treasured. It is an antique replica of a covered
wagon, that is uniquely
being drawn by a pair of Clydesdale horses. I was intrigued by his
request, and my creativity was peaked.
The picture on the right is the final result. The title of this oil painting is: "Only
The Strong Made It THROUGH!" He told me of a plaque that was
adhered to the underside
of the covered wagon that read, COVERED WAGON There's a covered wagon in Arizona
Where everybody had loaded their treasures,
They had loaded everything they had and they
started out across the United States...
No trails, no roads or anything and the pioneers headed across.
The plaque on the bottom of the covered wagon
reads like this..
" - The cowards didn't even start...
- The weak died along the way...
- Only The strong made it THROUGH!"
