|The Last Cup. Notable for the good camp-craft. The fire is banked against a rock which reflects heat toward the cowboy. The larger rock behind the cowboy holds the day's heat and also reflects back. A warm and cozy set-up.|
Duane Bryers born 1911, died 2012!
Considered more of an illustrator than an "artist". Cameras became much more common and made the accurate rendition of images mechanical. Thus, the story-telling part of images became more important.
|Nobody ever looked at a woman in a Bryers' painting and thought "That girl needs to get whacked with a BIG dose of worming medicine"|
Bryers favored painting old cowboys, robust women and kids playing outside.
You will get another dose of Bryers next week.
