A dear friend and artist Nat Lewis went out to haul with me one day and took pictures of the day.
Later she did a couple of paintings from those pics.
Here's from around 1979.I think I was still hauling by hand with no winch.Camel cigarette,too.

You look like the great, great grandson of a famous American Indian warrior. Cochise or Pontiac maybe? And the painting looks very realistic; without knowing otherwise I would have said it was a photo of a photo.

Gramp always said I was built for hauling traps.
This is one of the photos.one of the paintings was in the Farnsworth Museum.
I don't know if it lives there or was just a show.

My Great Grandmother "Rose" was all Indian,Chris.

Great pic. Great pose. I'd love to see the painting that came from it.

Port Clyde is a hotbed of artists, right (Wyeth family, etc.)? Is it near Monhegan? That area is frequently mentioned in American Art Review magazine.

Geez, you should have posted that on the "BANJO PLAYERS ARE ALL OLD WHITE MEN!" thread, before it got locked.

Having your head actually go up BEYOND the top of the frame was a brilliant move, to make you look "nine feet tall".
I mean, it very subtley suggests to the viewer that the guy in the picture is SO tall, the frame can't get him all in!

That isn't a pose,Paul...it's just how I look when I'm on my way somewhere in a boat.Always paying close attention where the landmarks and buoys are telling me where I can and can't go at a particular tide level or which way an oncoming vessel is approaching or planning how to take an oncoming deep wake,keeping in mind that I have a passenger to care for.

Yes,very artsy,here.I could see the Monhegan light turning from our southern windows.

I've had a lot of fun on Monhegan and my first woods truck was a '70 C-10 that spent its life on Monhegan owned by Albert Stanley as one of the few vehicles allowed on the Island.

I've played music for Andy and Jamie and we so enjoyed seeing his world class sportscars in the 60s and 70s.427 AC Cobra,'63 red split window 327 fuelie Corvette'61 XKE coupe,289 AC Cobra,etc., etc. and of course his 428 Ford powered mahogany runabout "Hellzapoppin".

They been here since 1900 and are very normal and nice people.

Nice pose, good lighting (day lamp?) , skin toner?. Circa about 1968? This is me going to get the mail. Nothing special, just the mail

No skin toner or pose,Bruce.I have naturally dark Indian skin.I leave my shirt off all summer and never burn.
That picture you showed looks like a pose.I don't think he'd make much of a lobsterman in a 20' skiff.

Nah, just waitin for mom to open the door. This is how I always look. Natural tone, relaxed, always aware of my surroundings. I also have some nice cars too. A 1977 nova with a broken taillight. And a 1998 Ford Explorer with a power steering issue. World class however. As you can see, I’m in fair shape, but I will burn when it passes 110 degrees

What kind of banjo do you play,Bruce?
I'm trying to find some level to communicate with you.

Banjo? Why I can’t even get a shirt on! In any season! I’m not even going to attempt to put finger picks on unless they’re specially made from Maine cider barrel rings. Mum drives a 2014 Toyota by the way

Speaking of smoking Camels reminded me of an old joke mocking a Camel cigarette advertisement ;

"99 out of 100 doctor's who tried Camels still preferred women"

Several years ago we went a bit out of our way to check out the No Scum Allowed saloon in White Oaks, NM.   

https://www.google.com/search?q=no+scum+allowed+white+oaks+nm&oq=no+scum+allowed&aqs=chrome.0.0j69i57j0l2.8146j1j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8   

Sadly, when we got there  [maybe a Tues. or Thurs. p.m., I forget]  it wasn't open.    crying

Edit: .... maybe they got word we were comin'.  ????

I don't recall Yul Brynner doing cigarette commercials, but he was often photographed with a cig in his hand.

He did do an anti-smoking commercial for posthumous release.

I just found this oil painting of that picture dated '99 by an S.Horan.
Thing is that pic is from 20 years before that and Nat worked in water colors.Must have been a friend of hers that wanted to paint that pic.
