Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

remingtonfight-for-the-water-hole-large

This is one of a series of travel bugs made to recognize paintings seen, and admired by the bug owner. A digital copy of the painting was downloaded from the internet. It was reduced in size, and proportions cropped to accommodate the laminating materials available to the owner. Regrettably these processes diminish the efforts of the artist. One truly must see the originals in person to fully appreciate the work. The text below is a mixture of my own observations and material gleaned from the internet (mostly Wikipedia and Web Gallery).

Frederic Sackrider Remington (1861 –1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the Old American West, specifically concentrating on the last quarter of the 19th century American West and images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry. Remington made a number of trips to the American Southwest, principally to cover the U.S. Cavalry and its pursuit of the Apaches. Dash for the Timber launched his career as a major painter.

After Norman Rockwell, this is the second artist whose work I could recognize on sight at a very young age. He is without peer in depicting horses in motion. This piece was an illustration in the Colliers Weekly Maga
