Cowboy riding his horse through a stream towing his pack horse. Signed lower right, 'Austin Deuel .' The title, 'Waithica' (illegible word best guess) is under the name, but it is difficult for me to read. I see no scratches, restorations or water damage on the painting. The watercolor painting measures 8 inches tall and 16 inches wide. The original 1960’s wood frame measures 17 inches tall and 25 inches wide. Frame has some wear around edges but is still in good condition. If you would like new back paper please let me know and I will have it put on free of charge.
Austin Deuel was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1939. He taught art at the junior college level, managed an art gallery, and wrote a San Diego newspaper column on artifacts. He is a sculptor, painter and muralist. Austin Deuel is a member of the American Indian and Cowboy Artists Association. During the Vietnam era he was a Marine combat artist and in 1986 he completed the San Antonio Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
