Rough Rider By David Uhl

Something very different by artist David Uhl. Always looking at old photos to find inspiration for his new pieces of art, he found a couple of interest for a new work, but not enough to help him compose from them the scene he had in mind. Until he found the missing piece of the puzzle to complete the composition he had been working on for a very long time.

The historic pictures above come from a 1916 edition of the magazine “Enthusiast.” They provide the unique backdrop for his latest creation named “Rough Rider. David was always quite fascinated by the colorful character named Teddy, someone he would have loved to meet, a man who stood for many things that seem so relevant even in today’s world.

    I was talking to my friend Mike Wellman, whose dad was William the filmaker, in the 20’s. He said all of the movie people put their JD’s and Vl’s on train cars and shipped them to locations where they were working. Mike came along later, as the last child and by then his dad was finished with all the movie stuff and got to spend a lot of time with Mike. His dad was an outlaw in his industry. They didn’t invite him to the Academy Awards, even when he won it. 🙂
    Note: I lived with Mike in Biarritz in 1969, surfing with some mad Aussies (dropped full tabs of orange sunshine and saw patterns). Some hashish was stolen from a secured, fenced room in the local train station. They thought Mike knew the thieves. They couldn’t arrest him, so they put a dog collar around his neck, in the middle of the gendarme compound and when the kids came home from school, they sticks at him.

    I am reading “Colonel Roosevelt” (by Edmund Morris) now. He was quite a man, literally larger than life and recognized for being so, internationally, in his own time. We could sure use more people like him.
