Paddle Art: NC Wyeth

Newell Convers Wyeth Wyeth (October 22, 1882 – October 19, 1945), known as N.C. Wyeth, was an American artist and illustrator. According to Wikipedia, this prolific artist created over 3,000 paintings and illustrated 112 books! Here's a painting featuring a decorated paddle blade...

The paddle decoration seems very similar to Indian Maiden by Moonlight by Charles Realyea that I posted about here. The 2 artists seem to have been contemporaries so might've influenced each other.

Thanks Chris. Yes I'm a devoted recent member of the WCHA..Seen a lot of your postings on the forums. I am absolutely stunned by your amazing skills as a model canoe builder. Since my cedar canvas was made from Pam Wedd's reproduced 14ft Gerrish form, I'm especially partial to your Gerrish replica. Can't make it to the Assembly this year after they changed the date a week earlier... o well.
