My finished Gouache Watercolor painting of Brooks Lake.
Other events taking place were Indian dancers performing right behind us as well as a Chainsaw carving contest by some of the top artisans in the country and later a Pig wrestling contest. A number of vendors were also set up and the Bacon brothers performed for over a thousand people which is a great event for a town of less than that population. Proceeds go towards establishi8ng a ranch retreat for surviving families of service people lost in the Iraq and Afghan war. This year a number of those folks stayed at the Absaroka Guest Ranch NW of town and it is a time of healing and sharing for those families who have contributed their best to America. A worthy cause that is all ready reaping huge rewards and times of healing. God bless them all.
