Fred Pfeiffer : High Lonesome - 1971- Full Cover

Here is another update and an attempt to
remove the verbiage from a cover and
put it all together. Fred's original would
differ from this , but for fun, I had a go
at it in Photoshop.

This is still a favorite and makes me want to
read about this Lonesome Cowboy.

Another masterful job putting all the elements together. That is a heck of a painting.

This picture as a whole shows Fred's signifigant move toward abstraction at one point in his career, but I preferred the trimmed-down version that was used in the 1980 Louis Lamour calendar.

In so many of Fred's paintings I can sense a direction that he wanted to take with the design, and this is one of them. But, there were limits to what he could do, imposed upon him by the very nature of his assignment.
