This watercolor painting was was based on the hunter and deer shown on the Hunter Horn, just one of many horns that are in the Mel Hankla “Folksy Artist” exhibit, “Shreds of History – Hung on a Horn”. A horn that was formally in the Jim & Carolyn Dresslar collection. Other horns in the exhibit that feature a hunter and deer are: the E/W Horn, the Roxbury Horn, the Moth Horn, and the Skinner Horn. When I first saw this motif by the “Folksy Artist” several years ago I was intrigued by it and wanted to do a painting of it. I did one for Jim and Carolyn Dresslar. In the past, I have done other paintings with a hunter and deer motif. However, this is only the second painting that I have done based on the work of the “Folksy Artist” horns.K.S.
