Here is a link to a little video I posted showing about a dozen old pouches I restored some time ago...
please follow that link to see a horn I recently carved...
This photo makes me think of Huck and Tom. I can just about see all the shanty boats and rafts that must have
dotted the river here once upon a time. What days those must have been.
“Bruin du le Roche”
The Legend of LaSalle and Tonti’s cache of
gold buried on top of Starved Rock’s 125 foot bluff
lured many 18th century treasure hunters to the ruins
of the old trading post known as “Le Roche”.
One night over two hundred years ago, as if guarding
the old French treasure a giant bear rose up out of the
forest and chased a group looking for the fortune back
into the Illinois river. To date, the treasure has never
been found, though rumors of it still persist.
We are back...due to some required upgrades that were way over my head, the page here was toast...
but were back now thanks to Casey! Thanks a million Case...
I just finished up a new print based on local legends at Starved Rock...
I tried to combine a few styles, including the New Woodlands popularized by
the Indian Group of Seven...

Here is a link to the story and additional images of a powder horn I recently finished.
Next in the series will be a special "The Keys To War" companion piece.
