The Big Horn Sheep
This inlaid picture of a Big Horn Sheep's head is one of the most familiar pictures that we children remember because it was on our wall at home for so long. Dad drew the design based on the Big Horn Sheep's head printed on a bag of pinto beans, one of the largest crops in the Powell Valley where we grew up. I took the above photo of the pinto bean bag at the Homesteader Museum in Powell WY. The picture measures 13 x 16 inches. Dad burned "Ralston Wyoming" on the back, so it would have been completed between 1941 and 1944.
