J. Clinton Shepherd(?), (cowboy novel illustration)

Illustration for a cowboy novel, “Man to Man,” 1920’s. Oil on board, 18″ x 13″. In Mortise-and-Tenon frame No. 4101 “Extensions”—2.25″ -2.75”, in quartersawn white oak (Van Dyke stain), with raised square plugs.

This well-rendered illustration could have been framed much more formally, but the customer and I agreed that spirit of it called for this more  masculine treatment.
