Elk in Mountain Scene
This picture is worth studying carefully just to appreciate the incredible choices of veneers and veneer patterns. The veneer in the frame is incredibly beautiful. Dad completed this picture, which measures 20 x 26 inches, in 1988. When we were young and lived near Ralston WY during WWII, we children shared a large room for a time that was originally intended for a garage. Dad's scroll saw and work bench were on one side and in one corner of the room, and I remember going to sleep at night while Dad was cutting out intricate patterns of pieces of veneer on the scroll saw far into the night.
