Vintage Selfie -- Cowboy Artist -- L. H. "Dude" Larsen [1940s]

Cowboy Artist - L. H. "Dude" Larsen
A "selfie" so to speak.
70 years, or so, before selfies became popular.

Back of the card with poetry.

Painting the west ...
How do you like the Dude's selfie? :-)

Thank you for stopping by John's Island.


  1. Well, I think it's delightful, John, and I love the poem imagining the West in Heaven.

  2. Kids these days think they're so original. Snort. (A little rude to leave his horse standing there saddled all day, I think, maybe.)

  3. I love it. What a creative selfie!

  4. How cool to paint a "selfie" way before they were called that. :)

  5. I like it. It's a selfie, all right, of another sort, but still. This is yesterday's post, John, and it arrived sometime during the night to my Reader. I'll go look for today's post now. :-)

  6. This is great. I loved seeing it. Hope you are doing well. It's taken me a while to get back to you, and I asked about my header photo. No, it isn't Alaska, but Summit Lake near the top of Mt. Evans in Colorado from our trip last summer.

  7. Yes! I like it very much! Very nice painting and poem. Reminds me of the song "A Cowboy's Dream of Heaven."

  8. I like it a lot, John! Thank you so much for sharing.
