Arnold Friberg Dies at Age 96

An amazing artist passed away yesterday.  His paintings of scenes from the Book of Mormon were a part of my life since before I can even remember.  According to my History of Illustration course at BYU, not only was he an amazing painter, he was also a really good person.  A lot of really fantastic painters seem to have totally unbalanced home lives, but Friberg was a saint (ha ha, get it?)  Anyhow, here's a few of his works.  Great stuff.

I love the pix of RRs / Buffalo!

the buffalo 'fight' to get near the RR tracks, even if for miles around, there's Nothing Else going on...

Who's gonna Punch Their Ticket?
