"If I can't picture it, I can't understand it." - Albert Einstein

I am over 70 years of age and I am a drawer of pictures. I hesitate to call myself an artist but if you want to pin
that label on me I will not object to it. I draw because I am pretty much housebound by health issues. Drawing
gives me something to do to pass the time and I find it to be relaxing. I was born and raised in the outback
region of Texas - what they call the "staked plains". In the old days it was all part of the Comancheria and
controlled by the Comanche Indians. It was considered to be no man's land and it had little to offer the settlers.
then moving west. White settlers started coming in the middle 1800's, around a few large ranches that were
established. Settlement escalated in the 1870's when the railroad came through. I try to tell stories with my
drawings, sbout the people involved - the cowboys, Indians, soldiers, ranchers, lawmen and outlaws
I don't do this to make money, but if you are interested  I will sell original sketches for $20 each, if  they are still
available. I will sell good quality printed copies of any of the sketches I have on file for $5 each.  Standard
shipping is free for all orders, to addresses in the United States, including APO and FPO.  All purchases will be
processed through PayPal, which is about as safe as you can get on the web. I am doing this for a good cause.  
Profits from sales here will be donated to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Foundation.
What you see here is a small sampling of my work. My work is raw and rough and you will notice that I don't
spend a lot of time trying to make it look like a photograph. I work mostly with 2B lead pencils - the yellow stick
kind we all used in grade school. I sometimes work with a fine point gel ink pen.   I rarely use colors in my
artwork because I am afflicted with Age Related Macra Degeneration.

Feel free to contact me. Your questions and comments are always welcome. You can communicate with me

Welcome!
DOUBLE MOUNTAINS AND COMANCHERIA
QUANAH PARKER
ENCHANTED MOUNTAINS
DOUBLE MOUNTAINS
I grew up on the dusty prairie lands of west central Texas. Much of my art is influenced by my memories from those boyhood years long ago.

The Double Mountains are not mountains at all. They are actually two flat topped buttes, formed close together. They are an impressive sight rising from the flat lands of the staked
plains but they are not much to brag about, as mountains go. They are located in Stonewall County, Texas. As a boy growing up in Rotan, Texas I spent a great deal of my time gazing
off to the north, looking at the mountains and day dreaming. They were several miles away from us. I didn't know anythingabout their history. Later I learned that hey were mentioned in
writings left by early Spanish explorers and were a landmark used by early settlers travelling throughb there. They were sacred ground for the Comanches and the area around them
was grazing land for huge herds of buffalo. The great Chief Quanah Parker somethimes brought his band of Comanches there to winter over.

COMANCHES
The Comanches had a reputation for being the most savage of all of the tribes and bands on the great  plains. They were superb horsemen. They were feared by the other
tribes and kept tight control over the territory they claimed. It was known as the Comanacheria. The Comanches tightly controlled all intruders.They kept vistors under constant
observation and did not hesitate to attack if there were viloations of their terms.
