In the mid-1970s I used to hang out in Old Town Scottsdale at Abe Hay's shop on Main Street. I was there to gawk at all the cool paintings and saddles and Old West gear. Once when I was there I saw a painting on the wall that stunned me.
I seem to remember the painting was for sale for $225,000 which I thought was reasonable, but out of my reach. This evolved into studying the life of Maynard Dixon and stumbling across this photograph.
